Inspired by the Italian Renaissance and Central Victorian landscape, Liz Caffin’s work locates surrealism in the desert. In tip tip, an original etching, creatures called the ‘echidna people’ tiptoe between termite mounds. These characters are part autobiographical, halfway between human and marsupial, quietly traversing a landscape lit only by moonlight.

tip tip forms part of ‘Footprints’, a suite of prints by sixteen Central Victorian artists that coincided with the international printmaking conference IMPACT 7 2011: Intersections & Counterpoints’. Exploring themes of sustainability, reconstitution and recycling, ‘Footprints’ celebrated the Central Victorian landscape, experimental printmaking and the importance of conservation.

Caffin is a highly regarded printmaker, having exhibited at Shepparton Art Museum and Castlemaine Art Gallery. Infused with whimsy and mystery, tip tip explores what it means to be at one with the Australian landscape. For collectors of contemporary and socially conscious prints, it is a delightful find.
