DORRIT BLACK: LINOCUTS
To coincide with the reprint of the popular monograph, Dorrit Black: Unseen Forces, a selection
of Dorrit Black’s colour linocuts are on display in the Atrium.
Black was a leading Australian Modernist painter and printmaker who in 1927 studied linocut printmaking in London under the influential British printmaker Claude Flight. Inspired by Flight’s teachings and later by the Cubist principles of French artists André Lhote and Albert Gleizes, Black’s linocuts expressed the dynamism and rhythms of modern life.
