TJ Bateson, Iteration Silver Field, multiple plate wood block, 2017

In Iteration Silver Field, the exploration of colour and low tonality with quiet, muted, rhythmic tonal shifts of a contemplative nature and the broken moment of pattern call for reflection, allowing the many layers to unfold and reveal themselves. Bateson's iteration of mark embraces and celebrates machine-made aesthetics alongside evidence of the hand of the artist within an immersive, visual experience, looking to the essay in discretion, inwardness and silence in its minimalist, ethereal quiet.

Iteration Silver Field was produced and acquired through the Print Council of Australia’s Annual Print Commission in 2017.
