"My passion for lithography was ignited when I was a student at the South Australian School of Art" ~ Susan Dorothea White

Prints

Susan White produces her own prints, by hand, in her studio. A complete list of the artist's editioned prints (about 100) is in The Printworld Directory of Contemporary Prints and Prices (2006).

Since 1980, White's prints have represented Australia in over 50 international biennales and exhibitions in Japan, Korea, UK, USA, The Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Yugoslavia, Poland, etc.

The National Gallery of Australia collection has many of the artist's prints, from 1960 onwards. The lithograph Thieves at the Market, produced while a student, dates from this time.

The freedom and versatility of lithography appeals to the artist. In 1975, she began establishing lithographic facilities in her studio, initially producing prints from metal plates passed through a small wooden wringer on a bed of plywood - Pedestrian Crossing (1977) is an example of this grainier technique.

In 1978, she acquired a professional lithographic printing press, and produced lithographs with up to 15 colours, most requiring separate plates. The Front Veranda (1986) is an example. Later, the artist installed a C19 cast-iron press and equipment for stone lithography. White prints woodcuts and blockprints carved from fibreboard. The artist has produced some etchings, the earliest dating from 1960.
