Vertigo Warriors | Molong
A spiritual journey, etched.
Inspired by her recent journey with breast cancer, Vertigo Warriors, is Jane Tonk‘s response to the challenges and changes faced on the road through treatment and recovery. Currently showing at Jayes Gallery in Molong, the exhibition is an uplifting meditation on her experience, and a showcase of printmaking mediums and techniques. “Printmaking provides me with a very cathartic way to document my journey and express myself,” Jane said.
Jane explores copper-sulphate etchings on aluminium plates, woodblock prints, linocuts, collagraphs and monoprints. The artist regularly exhibits artwork in group exhibitions at Orange Regional Gallery and the ‘Print Profiles’ exhibition at Cowra Regional Gallery. However, this will be Jane’s first solo exhibition as a professional visual artist since completing her Diploma of Fine Arts through Western Institute of Tafe at the end of 2011.
