This year’s Townsville Art Society’s Open Prize to the best in show has been awarded to a linocut created by Emily Hill. The intricate print depicts a pair of Pheasant Coucals getting all broody in the North Queensland Rainforest.
Emily has always been inspired by the North Queensland flora and fauna and this linocut offers just a glimpse into the tropical world in which Emily now lives.

Things have been quiet here in the Workshop of late… pieces of clay have been fired, slabs of linoleum have been carved, there are shavings of earth and non-earth things flying. Tiles have been glazed. Inks have been rolled. Stuff has been happening… I have been away but Emily Hill has been busy.
An upcoming Art Prize is on show and Emily is planning on entering the print making section, Emily won’t allow me to photograph the whole image as that will be on show shortly but I have been allowed to pinch just a tiny corner, a small section and will share with you. Oh by the way, this linocut is MMMmmmasssssive! And this shot is but a tiny part.

Speaking with Jason Daniels who photographed behind the scene shots for the upcoming Watercolour Exhibition by Emily Hill, he explains the history behind this photo of a fish.
“Emily has always worked with lino for making prints and one day she found this new material which is kinda like a white rubber that you can carve and print along the same lines as lino. It is easier to get a sharper edge but it doesn’t feel as organic. I wanted to capture for the exhibition, that it is not simply about the watercolours in this exhibition, there’s a story on how many of the still lifes were created.”
