Printmaking, eh?: Four Artists Expanding the Boundaries

Exhibition Announcement

The Embassy of Canada is pleased to present an exhibition in its Prince Takamado Gallery entitled Printmaking, eh?: Four Artists Expanding the Boundaries featuring works by Western Canada based artists who take experimental approaches to printmaking.

Steven Dixon of Alberta together with Wayne Eastcott, Davida Kidd and Michiko Suzuki of British Columbia share the common thread of consideration of the human condition in the 21st century. Dixon explores the consequences of human endeavour via the artefact/archival landscape while Eastcott pursues the interconnection of contemporary technology, humankind and nature. Kidd dwells on the internal – the dreams, guilt and passion of the inhabitants of our culture and Suzuki is concerned with the fragility and future of young women.

All four artists are risk-takers active in current research and dialogue on contemporary printmaking in grappling with the issues of the 21st century. They often combine digital technology with a range of materials including wood, paper, metal, or silk using classical and traditional processes. Their works range from large scale black and white images to full colour photo-based pieces, including installations and printed metal constructions. The result is an exhibition that is substantial, engaging, and provocative on multiple levels.
