Photogravure is a hand printed intaglio printmaking technique. Traditionally copper plates were etched using extensive chemical and acid-based photo mechanical processes, Sinclair uses photopolymer plates as a less toxic and environmentally sustainable substitute, she prints on handmade 100% Cotton Rag in small editions or mono-prints. She is committed to reducing waste in her practice and hand restores timber frames to display her work.
Guided by an Animist world view Sinclair’s images manifest through a responsive and embodied practice of journey, ritual and observance. Engaging the viewer in Magic and Place, Sinclair traverses the interaction between the human and the more than human to reveal visions of spirit at play in the world. In the service of dream and the imaginal Sinclair’s work evolves as a collaboration with spirit.
Her recent work; Earthbound, Speaking in Dreams and Weatherlore were developed over a three-year period and created on the lands of the Ningy Ningy, Butchulla, Turrbal, Jagera, Gubbi Gubbi and Wakka Wakka peoples with gratitude to the past, present and emerging elders within these communities.
The artist acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which she works and lives, through recognising their continuing connection to land, water and community.
