Bandicoot amongst the Hop Bush (2021)
The southern brown bandicoot (Isoodon obesulus) is one of Australia’s rarer marsupials. It is found in low, dense vegetation such as heathland across patches of southern Australia. It is threatened by loss and fragmentation of habitat through land clearing and burning, and by predation by introduced animals. This little bandicoot is part of a small population at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.
This is a limited edition print (a variable edition of 15) created by layering a hand-printed linocut with solar plate etchings. The bandicoot block is adapted from a photograph taken by John Boyd Macdonald (Jokar Photography).
29.7 x 21 cm print (paper size: 39 x 27 cm), on 300 gsm Hahnemühle paper, unframed. The edition number you see here is not necessarily the artwork available.
