‘My Lino block prints, ‘Olley Land – Yellow room’ and ‘Olley Land – Take a place at the table’, are informed by drawings of the Tweed Regional Gallery Margaret Olley home studio re-creation. Unlike the ordered compositions of Olley’s paintings these artworks respond to the multi-layered and visually fascinating rooms of her Duxford Street, Paddington home. The dining table, with its willow pattern ware and Kama Sutra placemats, was the repository of innumerable objects – the ultimate still life.

Made at my dining room table, this work acknowledges the lineage of women artists whose artworks respond to the domestic interiors that also served as their studios.’ ~ Christine Druitt Preston, 2021.
