Michael Schlitz
19 February – 6 March 2021

 
Michael Schlitz is a unique and celebrated Tasmanian artist renowned for his exquisite woodcut prints. Though remarkably distinct, Michael’s prints remain difficult to describe; uncaptured by language, his images are as sure and as fleeting as shadows. Light moves through Michael’s line work the way it does through the tree canopy, across the surface of water, or over ridges in sand. Though the images are darkened by detail and heavy with ink, they’re infinitely light, impossibly materially transient. There is a total surrender of figure to ground, as if temporally the body moves as landscape —rippling amongst— in a kind of longing for a consumption by earth, by darkness, or by another. There is a magical weightlessness in such confident mark-making, a swiftness of hand, a heaviness of humour and a softness of hope. In this exhibition Michael continues to reveal the depth to his practice, creating stunning ceramic sculptures that pay reverence to natural systems and the knowledge embedded in nature whilst also evoking the insight and gracious reminder of the memento mori.
