CORE can, as a theme, be read in a myriad of ways. This is part of its charm and indeed artistic responses or conceptual ideas ranged from childhood references, to child birth, core industry, the natural environment, social commentary through consumer culture and identity, the human condition, racism or cultural identity and history, politics, the landscape and national pride. CORE ideas can be translated in any printmaking discipline as best suits the conceptual and aesthetic approach of the responding artists. Silkscreen, woodblock, drypoint, etching, aquatint, mono print, collograph, lino cut and lithographic processes were undertaken in the production of various works in response to the CORE theme.
