The Burnaby Art Gallery will be showing my work at their satellite gallery, Bob Prittie Library Metrotown, 25 March to 27 May.

I 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

serigraph, monoprint

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.
