About the artists
Printmaker Barbie Kjar completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the University of Tasmania in 1987 and a Masters degree at RMIT in 2000. She has held solo exhibitions since 1986 around Australia and has been included in group exhibitions at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Hobart; Korea and France. She has been artist in residence in California, Barcelona, Canberra and Tokyo. She was awarded the Trust Bank Art Award in 1992, the Conrad Jupiters Art Prize in 1999 and Victorian Arts Board Grants in 1988, 1991 and 2004. Her work is held by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the Tasmanian Museum and Gallery, Hobart; Artbank, Sydney; Parliament House, Canberra and several regional and university galleries.
Jennifer Marshall is an Australian painter/printmaker formerly based at Venus Bay on the southern coast of Victoria but now resident in Tasmania. An established professional artist for over forty years, she first exhibited at Bonython’s Gallery in Adelaide in 1962, having studied printmaking at the South Australia School of Art under Karin Scheppers and Udo Sellbach. These two German artists introduced Marshall to the prints of Picasso and the German Expressionists, which fundamentally affected her aesthetic.
Milan Milojevic invents magical landscapes using a unique lexicon of exotic flora and fauna. The imagery is sourced from engravings and the artists’ personal lithographs and etchings. He creates multiple digitised layers of intense colour that he enhances with overlays of etching plates or woodcuts. Milan has exhibited nationally and internationally and has held regular solo exhibitions over the past two decades and contributed to group exhibitions throughout Australia, USA, UK, Europe and Asia. His work is held in major public and private collections in Australia and Europe.
