Diana Orinda Burn’s Om is a work of deceptive intricacy. In tangerine ink, the artist imprints the lattice of an electrical grid on a circle, punctuated by two white dots and a gum leaf. It is titled after the mystical Hindu syllable Om, the symbol for which echoes in the work’s composition. In finding unexpected harmony between a leaf and power grid, Burns evokes the precarity of our environment; without caring for nature the sound of the universe, Om, will falter.

Om 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.

Burns is a highly regarded printmaker, having exhibited as part of the Australian Print Triennial in 2018. For collectors of contemporary and socially conscious prints, Om is a reminder to listen to the universe.
