50 x 134 cm
Therese Ritchie was instrumental in the political poster movement of the late 1980s and her early work with graphic design techniques continues to inform recent digital collages and inkjet prints. Ritchie is committed to addressing topical issues affecting Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory — the context in which she lives and works — particularly the complex terrain of race relations. Addressing subject matter that is at times painful, sad or frustrating, Ritchie also uncovers its beauty.

paint on Chinese produce box
Stephanie Radok is an artist, writer, and editor who lives in a wild garden. Central to her work is an awareness of diverse cultures and languages, and the nuances of translation. Radok’s interest in Chinese food began a long time ago in Chinatown in New York City and continues in Chinatown in Adelaide, and at home. She cherishes the chapter called ‘The five great attributes of food’ in Eric Rolls 1992 book Sojourners: Flowers and the Wide Sea (the epic story of China’s centuries-old relationship with Australia). Wakefield Press has published two books by Radok: Julie Blyfield (2007) and An Opening: twelve love stories about art (2012).
