Surface Tension

If you’re in Vancouver, be sure to check out the thoughtfully curated show at Malaspina Printmakers on Granville Island. Andrea Pinheiro has brought together five conceptual printmakers whose work contains “traces of an interaction with a material surface; marks recorded through evocative acts ranging from violence, to tenderness and devotion.”

One of my favorites is Denise Hawrysio’s  installation which consists of a copper-plated “brick” (presented on a plinth), each side of which was etched and printed, the resulting work on paper accompanying the sculpture possesses an arresting beauty in its bold black-patterned marks. The other artists in the show are Jennifer Bowes, Joyce Wieland, Jessica Jackson Hutchins, and Niall McLelland.
