Rhizoming; language of print and place aims to explore the entanglement of nature, place and culture through a woodcut installation and accompanying offshoots based on artists books and objects. 

The works respond to the patterns and rhythms of a suburban beach on the Derwent River in Hobart. The exhibition aims to creatively explore, through printmaking and multiples, Deleuze’s theory that rhizomes pertain to a map that is always detachable, connectable, reversible, modifiable and has multiple entryways and exits with its own lines of flight.
