New work

Biophilia 2022-23 is Peta's largest print to date, spanning five panels and 2.5 meters wide, it becomes a fully immersive experience of south coast flora and fauna.

Over the past year in my linocut work, I delved into the cultural landscapes of two distinct Indigenous territories: Yuin Country and Jawoyn Country.

News from the studio

Ultimately, West’s prints and their expansive detailing perhaps speak to the similarly expansive connectivity between all living things. Yet, there is an undeniable sense of vulnerability to them. Despite the appearance of abundance, the bush relies on a fragile balancing act, which we humans are inextricably tied to. West’s works are deeply empathetic to the natural world, inviting us to reconsider our place within it, rather than distinct to it.
