Linda Swinfield, The Three Graces - Lillian's table, 2011

Linda Swinfield is a printmaker and paper sculptor, working with contemporary and traditional technologies including laser cutting, Photo-Lithography and digital manipulation processes. Over the past six years family and memory have become central themes in her practice, relating to the birth of her son and passing of her mother.

Whilst artist-in-residence at Gunyah, Linda plans to purse two projects. The first is a continuation and evolution of wood block prints and drawings begun just before the birth of her son. Secondly, Linda intends to begin a photographic series where she removes the man made elements in the landscape, forming a panoramic image without civilised human intrusions.
