Suspended Animation highlights the experimental nature of animation with works that explore historical, fictional, and performative subjects through motion, sound and stillness. With moving images and works on paper displayed side-by-side, this rich viewing experience provides a window into the artist’s creative process and the intrinsic qualities of printmaking that connect with time-based works. This includes printmaking’s long-established serial structure; its capacity for the sequential progression of image development; and the reproduction and repetition of images. The exhibition demonstrates how artists engage with myriad techniques and strategies of printmaking as an extension of drawing practice. This ranges from the hand-etched and printed line, to collages of woodcut and laser-cut elements, to silkscreen and digital prints.
