Rhyll Plant comes to printmaking from an unusual perspective. She grew up beside the ocean on Phillip Island, inheriting her parent’s interest in marine biology. As an adult, Plant became a scientific illustrator with the National Museum of Victoria and studied printmaking at La Trobe University.

‘Hare of the Dog’ is a play on the colloquialism “hair of the dog”, referring to drinking alcohol as a hangover remedy. Under Plant however, the idiom takes on the cadence of a parable — against a setting sun, a hare and dog unite. Graphic, bold and intriguing, ‘Hare of the Dog’ is clever aesthetically and conceptually.

For collectors of contemporary art and works on paper, this work will impress. It comes from Rona Green’s curation of fifty prints, exhibited at Geelong Gallery.
