Here are the first two prints of 2015. They are part of The Body, Stranger series exploring issues relating to chronic illness and identity. Both are silkscreen on paper and 22″ x 30″.
Every year, Alberta Printmakers’ holds an exhibition and exchange where artists submit ten prints and receive eight random ones from the exchange in return. I created the print below for the event. Its an 8″ x 10″ silkscreen called “Weight of Movement”.
In just one week I’ll be showing and selling my work at Handmade Here in Calgary. I’m one of 25 local artists who will be selling a range of work including ceramics, paintings, jewellery, textiles and of course, prints. I’ll have cards, bookmarks, scarves as well as a range of prints from the last few years. Come by November 15 & 16 at the Triwood Community Centre. 10-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday.
I’m currently en route to Asia where I’ll be attending the opening of Printed in Canada – an exhibition curated by Guy Langevin and featuring the works of 25 Canadian printmakers. Prior to heading off on my trip, I completed a new etching as part of my new series The Body Stranger. More to come about Taiwan after the opening! (sorry the colour is a bit off in the photo)
I’ve just completed a new silkscreen. Its part of a small series, the first of which (Limbs Made Unfamiliar) was in a portfolio at SGC earlier in the year.
Being the summer, I have a bit more time in the studio available and have started producing some new etchings and silkscreens. Here’s the first round, all are etching and chine colle.
I recently packed up my exhibition in SNAP’s mainspace. The exhibition featured two brand-new works, part of my large plexiglass series dealing with space, perception and collapsed time. Both works are 6 feet x 4 feet.
As I make forays into my new The Body, Stranger series/project, I have created a new small etching (with drypoint and chine colle).
