Dallas Richardson

Dallas Richardson’s prints capture Tasmania’s unique Tamar Valley and its surrounds.

About

Dallas Richardson’s works are a reflection of the environment and in them she captures its essence in intricate linocuts and drypoints. The fineness of her detail brings into focus a more intimate view that may otherwise be missed as demonstrated in a series of five linocuts of the ‘Tamar Valley from Legana Beach’. In these prints Richardson creates a panorama of the valley from Grindelwald to Rostella Homestead Dilston. Each print is a unique view in itself but when placed side by side with the other four the overall image shows the sweeping curve and breadth of the valley.

The series of drypoints of ‘Tea Trees in the Tamar Valley’ express a more intimate view. Other prints are quiet and mediative in their essence as if she has taken a lens to the landscape and focused on the detail.

Dallas Richardson has been practising printmaking over a number of years and has had prints included in the Blake Prize for Religious Art, the Henry Worland Memorial Print Prize and has work in the collection of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.
