Jan Senbergs, Coastal City (2), (2012), etching, imprint no. 8/15, 125cm x 132cm.

Well-established Australian artist Jan Senbergs explores form in architecture, landscape, narrative and history to create monumental feats of semi-abstraction. He is best known for his panoramic imagined city-scapes portraying distorted perspectives of the subject at hand.

With his trademark solid black line, Senbergs produced two new large-scale etchings in collaboration with Australian Print Workshop Printers in 2013 and Council acquired one for its collection. These prints combine imagined coastal and city scenes and are a continuation of Senbergs interest in place, landmark and creating ambiguous imagery from structural form.
