Trent Walter is an artist, printer and publisher interested in the intersection between printed matter and contemporary art. Walter’s collaborations take the form of artists’ books, print series and workshops that explore the social aspects of printmaking practice. The latter has seen his work shift increasingly into the public realm to engage with marginalised communities and ideas of national identity expressed through print-based media. Walter’s imprint, Negative Press, is a laboratory where printmaking’s inherent traits of mechanical reproduction, notions of the copy and complex relations to authorship are explored, participating in international dialogues regarding collaboration, materiality and representation. Recent projects include collaborations with Emily Floyd and Experimental Jetset, Amsterdam, on Floyd’s artist book Female Orgasm: A codex of sorts, after Ursula K Le Guin, and an expansive series of monotypes titled Shifting Landscapes by Emily Ferretti. In 2016, Walter and Brook Andrew were commissioned by the City of Melbourne to create a permanent, public artwork commemorating the lives and public execution of Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner.
Danica Miller is an artist and printer based in Melbourne. She works with Space Craft Studio, who create high quality contemporary artwork and designs through self initiated projects and collaborations with outstanding artists, architects and designers. Artwork and design projects created at Space Craft Studios have been exhibited and acquired for collections in significant Australian and international contexts, from the Tate London, Tiwi Islands, Art Basel, Paris Fashion Week, and Japanese Hotel projects, to artist talk programs in Collingwood.
