Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Documents the ideas, stages and techniques involved in the creation of German-born Jorg Schmeisser’s etchings in the north west of Western Australia and their final execution in his studio in Canberra. The creative process is as much about Jorg’s relationship to the etching plate as with his interaction with the landscape.
