Angela Cavalieri: large scale linocut printmaking process

The video “Guerre e Amore” follows the process of producing two large scale linocuts hand printed by Melbourne artist Angela Cavalieri for a Creative Fellowship at the State Library of Victoria. Inspired by her love of the Italian language, she researches the music of Claudio Monteverde and the architectural drawings and prints of Giovanni Battista Piranesi in the rare books section at the State Library. From here she develops preliminary drawings and ideas before moving to her Brunswick studio to draw, cut and finally hand print the two large-scale lino-cut prints in preparation for display in the Library.

The two prints, Guerre e Amore, are on display in the State Library of Victoria in association with the exhibition “Rome: Piranesi’s Vision” from 22 February — 22 June 2014.
