Fleur Rendell Bio
Fleur Rendell is an artist printmaker who lives in the Warby Ranges. She creates limited edition and ‘unique state’ linocut prints that are evocative and optimistic in tone.
‘I make prints in response to my immediate surroundings. Many of my works celebrate the minutiae of nature’s designs, while others reflect warmly on domesticity and family life, sometimes expressed as treasured memories.
Japanese wood block prints, as well as pop, street and folk art, are among my stylistic influences.
I enjoy the hands-on process of carving the lino and printing the images on my 1850s cast-ironAlbionpress.’
Fleur trained at RMIT and at the Australian Print Workshop. In 2008 and 2010 she was short-listed for the prestigious Silk Cut Award. In 2008 she won The Wangaratta Exhibitions Gallery Jazz Art Award. Her works are held in many collections, including the National Gallery ofAustralia.
