Martin King is one of Australia’s leading printmakers who has had more than 40 solo exhibitions in a career spanning three decades. His work has consistently responded to the Australian landscape, most visibly by making connections between land, sea and air.

King’s earlier works on paper traced the movement of rainshadows and the effect of weather patterns across undulating terrain and vast tracts of desert. His more recent works, express the fragility of our relationship with nature using simple motifs that convey a paradoxical vision of the Australian landscape as both tranquil and unsettling.
