The first thing you notice when you visit John Loane in his printmaking studio is, well, the studio itself. Located behind a plumbing firm in Mitchell, in a new industrial complex, the studio is fronted by a bland, featureless facade and a standard door with a number on it. But step inside, and it’s a huge, Aladdin’s cave of a space, a cavern two storeys high with stacks of prints, paintings, a printing press, cabinets and shelves and work tables stretching out. The colour scheme is industrial and muted – white, grey, ochre, with pops of red, mustard and yellow. The whole cluttered space has an aura of productiveness and organised chaos.
