Upon preparing for this exhibition of prints, Victoria McCaffrey realised that her folio was filled with images of trees; trees which has made their way into her psyche and her artworks without her conscious realisation. These trees are both serene and pervasive in their monochromatic representations.
The trees that inspire Victoria are generally on the road side, they are part of the everyday. Some she passes every day and others grab her attention on an unfamiliar track; she has found since starting her exhibition she can’t look at trees now without imagining them as linocuts.
Victoria has been exhibiting since 2002 and her works are represented in many private collections including Caroline Wilson, Sport writer for The Age and corporate collections in Australia, the USA, Canada, the UK and Europe.
