Do Androids Dream of Catching Butterflies, didn't tell me there was an Android on this Mission!!

Australian Print Workshop is proud to present the results of a major international project FRENCH CONNECTIONS, curated by APW Director Anne Virgo OAM, planned in collaboration with the National Gallery of Australia and made possible by the generous support of The Collie Print Trust.

This is the second of a series of exhibitions by the four artists who participated in FRENCH CONNECTIONS. Martin Bell's work is a reflection on the projects themes - the interplay of natural history, the history of science, empire, art and anthropology as it relates to early French exploration of Australia and the Pacific.

During the  2018 research study trip to France, APW and the Artists had privileged access to study rarely seen and highly significant collections in leading museums that has informed and inspired the production of an exciting new body of work in the print medium.
