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.
