Edging Forward was selected from a record 1,313 applicants, who submitted work from all 50 states as well as Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa.
The exhibition reflects the highly experimental nature of contemporary printmaking, which is wide-ranging in both its content and techniques. Masterful lithographs, etchings, and relief prints are deployed in deeply felt personal narratives, but above all, the artists on view in Edging Forward are tenacious explorers, testing the limits of their field one work at a time. Among the most imaginative formats on view are Eszter Sziksz’s three-dimensional print on ice, which will melt during the opening reception and be shown as a video for the remainder of the exhibition, and Kristina Davis’s stenciled lotion print, in which the viscous material complements her chosen subject, an uncomfortable quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s 1973 novel Breakfast of Champions.
My participation in this exhibition is supported by the generous assistance of the Ontario Arts Council.

From May 3 to 7, 2017, my work will be exhibited at the Art New York Art Fair at Pier 94. Inside Out is an exhibition curated by Heidi Elbers, and Peter Drake, and features work by alumni and faculty of the New York Academy of Art.
I'll be exhibiting at the 2017 Southern Graphics Council Conference in an exhibition curated by Terri Dilling called Hello. I Love You. I'm Sorry. The exhibition reflects upon the people that come and go in our lives (arrivals and departures), symbolized as a bouquet of flowers. Flowers are given on many occasions including births, deaths, anniversaries, travels, love and friendship. Flowers celebrate beauty and fleeting moments of time, and have also been an important subject throughout art history. A unique aspect of this project is that the individual prints are cut out as flowers and the display of the whole portfolio makes a combined visual statement as a bouquet.
My contribution to this project is a print that I designed based on a detailed verbal account of a fictional flower given to me by my seven-year old daughter. Throughout the print's development, I left drawings and proofs for my daughter to find, which she would edit with hand written notes. I was inspired to collaborate with my daughter in this way by the famous rhinoceros print made by Albrecht Durer, which was reportedly created from verbal and written accounts of the animal without the artist ever having seen one. The finished print serves as a gesture of trust and reverence in this imaginative and fleeting stage of her childhood.
In this exhibition, curators Jana Macalik, Christophe Jivraj and Lukus Toane have put together a group of innovative creators that will transform all four floors of the hotel with their immersive installations. The exhibition is part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, Canada’s largest cultural celebration of design with over 100 exhibitions and events forming Toronto’s design week.
My project entitled Hogweed Forest is a print-based project comprised of woodcut, linocut, and papercut techniques. Hogweed Forest examines the unintended impacts of cultivation, and the accelerating speed of plant invasions due to globalization. The landscape is cast in an active role, with aggressive and unpredictable power, instead of as a backdrop to our daily lives. Children are depicted as the explorers of this forest because of their tenacity and vulnerability. The simultaneous beauty and danger of the forest is prevalent in children’s stories, and despite the accuracy of the scale relationships, the giant hogweed makes the children appear as diminutive as Alice in the Wonderland garden.
Events including curator-led tours, design panel discussion, and opening party run from January 19-22, 2017. For more information, visit www.comeuptomyroom.com
