Works on pa­per com­ple­ment paint­ings and prints com­pleted by the artists as part of their pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment pro­gram at ARC Artz Stu­dio. The works high­light the skills de­vel­op­ment of these emerg­ing artists and pro­vide in­sight into the myr­iad con­cep­tual ex­plo­rations made – from ex­am­in­ing the world around them, to a mod­ernistic ap­proach of colour and form. For her first ma­jor solo ex­hi­bi­tion at the Tanks, Jane Den­nis brings a sump­tu­ous of­fer­ing of raw fish prints. Gy­otaku is the Ja­panese tra­di­tion of fish print­ing (gyo mean­ing fish and taku mean­ing rub­bing). Orig­i­nally a method for record­ing fish catches, it be­came an art form in its own right in the mid-1800s. Jane’s ap­proach to mak­ing this body of work has been a sim­ple com­bi­na­tion of slow art and slow food: Catch, print, eat.
