    These pieces are entrancing and powerful. I look at them over and over. Thank you for the connection, Mo.

  2. I’d love to look at the exhibition closely . . . in lieu of that I thank you for the lnks to stunning story.

  3. Thanks for the links Mo. I really liked the combination of relief print and traditional motif on Mulkun’s prints. Love Wolseley’s work. Had the pleasure of doing a print workshop at APW in Melbourne and he was guest artist, lots of fun, particularly as he bought his carving axes along!

  4. Nymphaea…..and Rakay……………i am stilled

  5. Mo, thank you so much for sharing this!
    Beyond beauty ..straight into the heart

    I saw John’s exhibition recently at the National Gallery of VIctoria and was blown away by his work. It made me want to stitch some of it

    • Mo Crow says:

      he is such a beautiful artist, his work needs no embellishment! John inspires us all to slow down and really look at the beauty and magic of our fragile planet…

  9. I don’t know how to express how beautiful these are… I could just look at them for days….
