The Dutch Dodo is a photopolymer print with chine collé by Tammy Mackay.  Having started a little project of drawing Dodo models from around the world, this is my first from abroad. This particular dodo model was made by taxidermist Jan Hakhof, for a Dodo exhibition in Amsterdam (Zoological Museum) in 1995.
Each print is carefully printed from a solar plate onto thin Japanese paper. Each on is then carefully cut in a circle and re registered and put through the press again to get the circular embossed shape.
This print was shortlisted for the Royal Academy exhibition 2019.

Size: H:61.5 cm x W:56.5 cm

Tammy Mackay comments "I have always had a passion for printmaking, which has always been my main form of expression. Although I have used etching and monoprint as my primary mediums, I have always experimented with new techniques. More recently I have used photopolymer plates and drypoint. These techniques are often combined with hand drawn or hand coloured chine collé. Exploring and developing new techniques opens up new possibilities which I feel is essential to my development as an artist and printmaker. Tammy Mackay's most recent body of work is entitled Love [loss] and Identity. This series has been a personal exploration of these themes. A journey of feelings often linked to an object, moment or past memory. Images have become both layered in process and layered in meaning. Animals and birds have become central to the theme and convey a subtle symbolism within their depiction. “Those Lost Forever” exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2013 and “Gone but not Forgotten” exhibited in this year’s show are both from this series. I grew up on a farm in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. I studied at Rhodes University in South Africa and graduated with an Honours Degree in Fine Arts, majoring in Printmaking. Although I now live in the UK, my work still reflects the imagery of where I grew up. I show my work in the UK and abroad, and have had work included in corporate collections in South Africa."
