Stolen generations is a dry point etching monoprint depicting a collection of birds' eggs that is housed in the Armidale Folk Museum. The eggs were collected between 1905 and 1917 in a practice that was quite common and acceptable at the time. It is now illegal.
Unique state, variation (i). The monoprint technique utilised here is a relief roll of ink applied with a brayer on top of an inked matrix, then wiped back with various implements. While each print is recognisable as being from the same matrix, no two prints are exactly the same.
On show at the Armidale Council Chambers Feb 5 - March 19 as part of Past Present Print, Black Gully Printmakers referencing the Armidale Folk Museum.
