My first print of 2018 is a silkscreen produced for the Going to Ground portfolio at SGCI 2018. Looking forward to the upcoming conference!
I had an image and a brief writeup in the Winter 2018 issue of Canadian Art. Their issue was on wellness so I had a few brief mentions of my research mentioned in the school guide (shout out to ACAD!) and an image published as well.
The amazing SNAP print studio in Edmonton, Alberta, created a new Print Patron fundraising level this past year and commissioned me to create a print for the donors. The print sold out before I even finished printing it back in November so its no longer available but you can check it out below and stay tuned for next year’s fundraising print.
Excited to have my work exhibited for Fresh Ink at Wonderfair during Lawrence Print Week (October 16th – 21st). The show was juried by Jeffrey Dell, an amazing silkscreen artist whose work I greatly admire. The show is up until November 5th and features an excellent lineup of contemporary printmakers. Check it out if you happen to be in Lawrence, Kansas.
Here are two new prints that I premiered at The Other Passport. Both are silkscreen on mylar.
September through October, I am exhibiting some new works alongside Jill Ho You and Marnie Blair at the Red Deer Museum Galleries. Our exhibition The Other Passport reflects on illness and its impacts. The title is based on a Susan Sontag quote from Illness as Metaphor:
Illness is the night side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place.
I’ll also be delivering an artist talk to students at Red Deer College on September 25th.
I have five prints on display at the Leighton Centre as part of Impressions, an exhibition of local Calgary (and region) printmakers. The show is up until the end of September (although its been up for a few months already).
I recently returned from Quebec where I attended the opening of the Biennale Internationale d’Estampe Contemporaine de Trois-Rivières (BIECTR). I was thrilled to be selected as one of 51 artists from around the world for this edition of the biennale. I met many excellent printmakers, saw a lot of great prints, and gave a short talk about my work in French. Install shots below:
Here are some new prints – a couple of them are portfolio prints including one that I never posted from last year. All are silkscreen on paper.
