Meet the maker: Wendy Dawes is a Canberra-based artist working primarily with printmedia, investigating individual and collective memory and the fallibility of both. Dawes explores and responds to the materiality of paper, frequently using the fold as a trope for the making, keeping, obscuration and loss of memory.
