Event Name
Transcribing Darkness Exhibition - open until 29 March 2013
15 January 2013
09:58 am - 09:58 am
Penrith (Werrington North) Campus

Address (Room): UWS Art Gallery, Building AD


Mike Birtchnell, formerly Senior Lecturer and Head of Printmaking in the School of Contemporary Arts at the University of Western Sydney's Bankstown Campus, is currently the Head of Fine Print at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin.

Mike Birtchnell is best known in Australia as a printmaker, but his drawings call attention to the interrelation of drawing and etching apparent through the compulsion towards inscription of the surface and the definition of shape and space which he brings to both mediums.

Art is not about "intellectualizing", Birtchnell claims, yet his work is an intense engagement of fine intellect and an extraordinary raw sensitivity. This exhibition showcases nine of Mike Birtchnell's works on paper.


The UWS Art Gallery is open during office hours only (9am-5pm, Monday-Friday).
