International Biennial Print Exhibition: 2022 ROC

I’ve never been to Taiwan (have you?) but one of my artworks is juried into the  International Biennial Print Exhibition: 2022 ROC.   The show runs from August 27 to November 20, 2022 in the Dadun Cultural Center, Taichung City, Taiwan.  (It’s conveniently located next to the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, in case you’re planning a visit.)

The International Biennial Print Exhibition began in 1983.  Here’s a link to images from the exhibition.  There are 180 artworks, from artists in 50 different countries.  A virtual catalogue of the exhibition is available here.  It’s an opportunity to see a diverse (and inspiring!) collection of contemporary printmaking.

I’m honoured to participate in the International Print Biennial: 2022.  My artwork,  before and after, here and now, is a 22 by 30 collage of original printmaking (intaglio, collagraph, embossing) and photographic (prints and transparencies) images.

Two themes, Risk Delight and Totem, are emerging in my artwork.  Re-examinging the piece, it seems before and after, here and now is a combination of the two series.
