‘The Chinese screen’ 2021 is a two-block lino print that reinterprets a motif used by Margaret Olley in many of her paintings. Here the screen, placed in the small yellow room that was her original studio in her Duxford Street, Paddington home, is underpinned by the ghosts of patterns borrowed from my living room studio, as though floating on a lace curtain.’ ~ Christine Druitt Preston 2022.
