Some excerpts from the exhibition statement:

This exhibition is the result of a collaboration that we commenced in 2002. However, the first work was not complete until the fall of 2003 because we spent many months trying to really understand each other’s interests, ideas and aesthetics. We wanted it to be a true collaboration and not merely two artists working on the same piece of paper.

The project is called INTERCONNECTION because it represents an interconnection on many levels: between ourselves as individuals, our cultures (Canada/Japan), the classical and technological forms, even the paper (classic Japanese Washi or Western papers etc.). Finally the works are brought to completion by another interconnection: that between our pieces and the viewer.

Please read more about these two printmakers’ collaboration in two articles written on August 23rd, 2004 and October 31st, 2005.
