The Green Line

The Green Line by Deanna Hitti

Her practice encompasses different techniques of printmaking and artist books.

As the child of Lebanese parents who migrated to Australia, a key theme running through Deanna Hitti’s works is the exploration of how Western culture has come to form ideas and unrealistic representations of Middle Eastern customs and beliefs.

In 2007, Hitti founded the printmaking and artist book studio, Rambunctious Press Australia, which runs regular creative workshops. She has exhibited internationally and nationally in numerous group and solo shows including The Centre for Book Arts (New York), IMPACT8 Conference in Scotland and 45 Downstairs.

Hitti’s artist books have been finalists in several awards including 2014 National Works on Paper Award and the 2013 Fremantle Print Award.

Her works have been acquired by major collections in Australia including The State Library of Victoria and the National Library of Australia in Canberra.

In 2014 Deanna Hitti was invited by the Chinese government to undertake a three month artist residency at The Guanlan Original Printmaking Base to create an artist book that was completed January 2015.
