Exhibition Announcement 

The Embassy of Canada is pleased to present a contemporary art exhibition entitled
“MA: Lorraine Pritchard” featuring a selection of ink drawings.

The concept of space has always been a visceral and intimate reality for Lorraine Pritchard who created this series of ink drawings on washi inspired by the concept of Ma, which means time/space in Japanese.

While time and space are abstractions, they are nevertheless essential for us to function in this world. Lorraine Prichard demonstrates these concepts through the use of curves, arcs and parallel lines forming intersections, planes and fluctuating densities that create changing spatial interrelationships. The result is seen in this exhibit - a series of original work depicting a balance of delicate, structured planes.

Lorraine Pritchard was born in the Canadian Prairies of Manitoba and is influenced by the patterning and spatial relationships of the vast plains.

As a visual artist her work includes drawings, painting, and constructed assemblages. The underlying motivation of this artist is a search for a visual language that expresses the interrelationship of spiritual and physical reality. Her work has been exhibited in Canada, France, Belgium, the United States and Japan. She currently lives and works in her studio in Montreal and is represented by Beaux-arts des Amériques.
