Research Statement

Research Background The Tamarind trained print maker Peter Lancaster produced an exhibition for the front of his Fine Art Print Studio, called Lancaster Press. The exhibition was of lithographs produced by Lancaster or artists working with him.
Research Contribution The lithograph produced by Anne Lord of the Buddha's footprint was created during a lithography work shop at Vincent Campus, Townsville, James Cook University in 2004. It follows the artist's inquiry into the Buddhist icons in China in 2003.
Research Significance The image of the Buddha's footprint is a recognized symbol for the presence of the Buddha. It is not necessary to see the Buddha when the footprint is represented. McArthur found 'The Buddha himself is not represented, apparently implying his non-presence, or transcendence of this world' (McArthur 2002:14).
