MYTHO-POETIC: Print and Assemblage Works by Glen Skien

MYTHO-POETIC: Print and Assemblage Works by Glen Skien interrogates the human condition with 35 artist books, assemblages, collages and installations that bring to life social histories and vexing questions of Australian identity, place and myth. Skien's etching practice is the platform for his work in other media, while underlying narratives are presented through the use of symbolic imagery such as maps, letters, books and ephemera. The exhibition offers viewers an immersive experience rich in imagery that navigates residues of the past and creates new propositions for identity and historical awareness.

MYTHO-POETIC is organised by the Gympie Regional Gallery and toured by Museums & Galleries Queensland. Is has been assisted by the Gordon Darling Foundation and the Australian Government through the Ministry for the Arts’ Visions of Australia program.
