On display at Lalonde Art Gallery are several monoprints exhibited by local artist, Ann Gollifer.

The works are clearly organised and titled in groups, with some seductive surfaces and themes, executed with dedication, perhaps even more so than her previous solo entitled ‘Branded!’ at the Frame Gallery in 2011. 

But seduction cannot be an end in itself.  Well-timed repetition of a single motif can lend some ambience and intensity.  Andy Warhall, a pioneer of the technique, which put banality of reproduction on the art pedestal, had his crudely industrial approach to art, which had a powerful effect on popular culture, and this was his consistent message: multiplicity increased the democratic accessibility but decreased value as a result.
