Craig Couzens is an emerging print artist based in the regional NSW city Wagga Wagga. Passionate about elevating the profile of fine art printing, his work is produced using archival inks and paper. Craig’s work has been exhibited in a number of public group shows, as well as his recent successful solo exhibition in late May 2017 called ‘Body of Work’. His work is included in numerous private collections in NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland.

The limited edition print ‘The Three Sirens’ is drawn from tales of old. ‘The Odyssey’ describes how Homer could only safely navigate past the Island of Desire by being tied to the mast while covering the ears of his crew. Only then was he able to resist the enchanted song of seduction. Unlike the legendary Sirens modern woman has shed her wings, but the siren’s song of enchantment remains. Man’s desire has little defence against the wiles of the temptress.

A sense of stillness is necessary to refresh the psyche, yet human kind is still drawn to the excitement of the night. ‘From Dusk to Dawn’ is an interpretation of the young of heart enjoying the company of others. Here the flash of laser and strobe lighting momentarily freezes movement to where bodies seem un-characteristically contorted. We remain aware that the blanked-out areas contain still more of the crowd – but they are no more than ambiguous shapes. Yet, we dance Baby! We dance!
