Penang and Back
Kathy Fahey's exhibition of urban images, ink drawings, lino prints, paper cuts and artist books from Penang and back in Melbourne is on now at Hand Held.
Small boxes with responsive ink and acrylic sketches and paper cuts are stacked upon one another - representative of the colour, movement and activity of Penang City.
The Melbourne suburbs are represented by strong black and white lino cuts. Bound into artist books the lino cuts stand as urban cityscapes and the large wall hanging built from long printed strips is indicative of the city to suburb and back again daily routine of suburban living.
