The Redbox Gallery - Rew Hanks






Rew Hanks work is the output of a year long Residency at Sydney's Royal Botanical Gardens, an obviously encompassing and challenging location for any Artist... These Linocuts are nothing if not astonishing in their technical beauty and scale and the content is engaging too!!!

There is so much more than first meets the eye (how often does that happen??) and the works deserve some close and considered gazing...

I really wanted to use the term post modern printmaker somewhere!!!

And something we don’t get to see very often was a short performance by Clarence Slockee, the Education Officer at the Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens...
