Daisy Jugadai print from Ikuntji Artists

The 32 painted acetates for this beautiful silkscreen were done a number of years before this important Haasts Bluff  artist sadly passed away. Our screenprinter, Clinton Barker, did a great job once the print was approved for editioning and a limited number of these colourful orginal silkscreen prints is available through the Ikuntji Art Centre or...

Don’t just look at our blog!

Basil Hall Editions’ printers work on over 100 editions of prints a year. However, only a small fraction of these beautiful editions appear on our website, as we don’t offer all of them for sale ourselves. Art Centres based in aboriginal communities, Galleries (such as Nomad Art in Darwin) and other Print Publishers (such as Grahame...

John Wolseley returns to BHE in January 2010

John Wolseley has just been back at BHE in mid-January to complete some plate work and “edition” a series of frottaged monoprints he has done for the Nomad Art Project. John spent a week resolving one image, printing the “frottages” with Mats and commencing a new piece with Basil.

Darwin artist Meng Hoeschle works with Mats

Meng worked with Mats and Basil briefly before her Nomad art exhibition to produce a multi-plate colour etching based on the glass pieces in her Parap show. One plate was made by exposing a piece of old wire onto a photoplate; the second using softground. Here, the proud printer and artist stand happily by their...

It’s a bit damp in Darwin today

Angus Cameron shot this bustling street in downtown Parap on December 12. Traders were attempting to have their annual Christmas Market (just to the left of this scene) and Nomad Art would have hoped for a few passers by. Not a great day for Christmas shopping.

Wingu Tingima’s new silkscreen print

Here is Wingu’s beautiful silkscreen. She painted the image onto sheets of acetate during a workshop conducted by Basil in Nyapari in March 2009. The work by the Tjungu Palya artists is particularly strong, owing to the involvement of Art Co-ordinator Amanda Dent, whose long-term association with Wingu and others at Nyapari has lead to...
