Simryn Gill has developed a distinctive oeuvre that encompasses an array of media and processes, including drawing, installation and photography.

The series of relief prints Pressing In, 2016 was developed with Melbourne printmaker Trent Walter and are impressions taken off the surfaces of machine-shaped and hand-wrought timbers washed onto the shore in the vicinity of the artist’s studio in Malaysia. Various paper types are used, from a catalogue of butterflies, the locations of stars, the moral development of children, industrial design practice, and wage rolls and ledgers.
