The Burnaby Art Gallery will be showing my print work at their satellite gallery, Bob Prittie Library Metrotown, 25 March to 27 May.
I am delighted to have the opportunity to show these prints. Most of them are, literally, hot off the press.
Here are a few of the Sewing Lessons themed hybrid prints that will be on display on the 2nd floor gallery.
Number 5 a/p 21 x 22 in. a/p
The Sewing Lessons project began in 2014 with an installation piece. It’s really got a hold on me, and I’ve since produced many works related to this theme, including sculpture and painting.
Sewing Lessons 1 1/5 20 x 21 in.
This print is part of that installations piece I did in 2014. (Check out my post on April 2015 for more information.)
It’s photo etch on copper plate. That pattern provided a matrix, both materially and metaphorically, for many other prints.
I’ll be showing this piece, plus paintings, and sculpture, at Xchanges Gallery, Victoria, 3 – 19 May 2019. The show is called Sewing Lessons, of course..
The installation opened the door to experimenting with other technologies for plate making; cnc engraved and laser etched plates.
Or E – Back A a/p 22 x 22 in. cnc engraving, chine colle, monoprint
The matrix for this print is a cnc engraved plate. I added two types of chine colle, and copper foil.
Cut 1 11 x 15 in. 1/1/15 laser etching, chine colle, and monoprint
This matrix for this piece was a micro view of a photo of tree bark. I converted it into an image that was laser etched on lexan plate. It’s a tricky process, as the laser can melt the plate.
Contrast AB 8 x 10 in. 1/1/15 cnc engraving, chine colle, monoprint
This plate was made using cnc and engraved on lexan on an xy table. It’s based on a photo of my sewing machine.
I’m very excited about my direction in hybrid printmaking. I’d appreciate your comments or question about my work.
