I was invited by the New Gallery to participate in their portfolio fundraiser for the John Snow House. Ten artists with a connection to the artist-run centre were invited to create a single-colour digital image that they printed on John Snow’s old relief press. My contribution and an image of the press are below. It marks the first time that someone else has printed one of my images. The full folio is available for purchase from the New Gallery.
A review of the Calgary Biennial is up on Portage Press, a new site for critical arts writing. My work is discussed in Eric Heitmann’s article, check it out! Also, tonight is the launch of the catalogue for the show. The curator, Steven Cottingham, sought essays and articles from both artists and writers so I’m looking forward to reading about all the different interpretations of home. Today, home means warm refuge since its about -20 here in Calgary. Blargh. Bring on the chocolat chaud!
