Margaret Genever and Laurel McKenzie are showing new works in an exhibition titled Body Languages at ArtRoom@Vivo, Palm Cove, FNQ.

Margaret Genever's works are drypoint prints that have been observed and drawn (inscribed) directly from the live model onto perspex plates. They are subsequently inked and printed with chine collé - additional layers of thin, transparent, coloured paper that are laminated onto the thicker printing paper, with a single passage of the plate through an etching press. The figures, located in the studio environment, are recorded in a very lively manner as a consequence of frank observation and the directness of the drypoint medium. The introduction of non-human animals into the mise en scène underscores Margaret's ongoing interest in the interactions between human and non-human animal species. The works are limited edition, original prints.

Laurel McKenzie works with mediated representations of women - reiterations of stereotypical women from the popular media. The images are compiled from collages of torn and cut paper which are then scanned, further layered and manipulated in the digital environment and printed onto canvas with archival pigment inks. These works continue the tradition of working with collage/photo-montage as a feminist strategy that began with Berlin Dada artist Hannah Hoch in the 1920s. The small canvases are stretched and box framed.
