Sarah Plummer

Art Forms: Printmaking, Writing

Residency Year: 2023

Lives / Works: Tongva/Gabrielino land, Los Angeles USA

Sarah Plummer is a collaborative printer and maker, lately of Australia and more recently of California.

She was raised in Sydney and moved to the USA to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Printmaking) at Rhode Island School of Design before attending Tamarind Institute’s Professional Printer Training Program for collaborative lithography.  Sarah is captivated by the alchemic expanse of lithography and loves things that seem impossible. She finds the opportunity to bring well-honoured, innovative approaches to artists and their work as one of the greatest pleasures. Sarah has most recently printed fine-art lithographs at Gemini G.E.L. for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 150th anniversary, and has just set up her own studio, Speck Editions.  

 

In Residence at Bundanon

My current projects unite the traditional craft of lithography with place-based research and writing, fostering connection and communication not only between artistic disciplines, but between kingdoms of beings and landscapes to which I am devoted. I have been scaffolding a piece of literary non-fiction that addresses the nature of collaboration, the chemistry of lithography, and how these things parallel ecology in the Anthropocene and what it is to be a human. While this is my primary focus at Bundanon, I will also be foraging botanical gum saps for investigation into the use of native kino in lieu of Gum Arabic in the lithographic process. This research relates to a larger vision for an investigation into site-specificity and the indexing of place—the history and memory that lives in land, and the ways that we may choose to shepherd our world into a new era of repair.
