'Resistance - Surrender' - ARALIA STREET SHOPS
Amelia Luscombe and Jocelyn Tribe are two friends who both studied Printmaking and started out their friendship feeling very inspired by the legacy of prints and works on paper in the Northern Territory while working at Nomad Art Gallery in 2017. Ever since, the duo have been cultivating a collaborative practice together and have exhibited in a variety of spaces. They now call themselves PRESSplay in reference to the playful nature of their art making processes, especially if they have access to a press!
Resistance - Surrender is a meditation on the tension between the duty of care artists have to the natural environment and the inherent drive to create. The incorporation of bi-products from previous collaborative projects allows us to contemplate the waste generated by the creative industry while yielding to the beauty of the artificial.
