Canberra regional artist Julian Laffan’s hand-cut and coloured woodcuts explore themes of history and identity. This particular series captures moments of time in peace, yet some may have been sites of major events in the past. The works are inspired by Julian's recent travels, with the meticulously hand-cut images a direct contrast to the fleeting moment he portrays. As he explains, "Each piece is hand-rendered in slow motion, the opposite of the instantly posted image of today...essentially functioning as meditations on particular moments. ” Julian’s work is greatly admired and held in the collections of the Canberra Museum and Gallery as well as the Print Council of Australia.
