Un pequeno parte de algo mas grande
February 25 - March 26, 2011
" 'Un pequeno parte de algo mas grande' or 'a small part of something larger' was produced at printmaking studio in Barcelona. Always when working on a project one wants to make some connection to the place of production. While the source material for this work and the drawings used to make it, are from Toronto, I was happy to find certain serendipitous connections with Barcelona. The 'cubist' look of the renderings and lithographs bring to mind the young Picasso at Els Quatre Gats, just prior to his experiments in cubism. Also, interestingly, the city itself is bisected by an avenue called 'Diagonal' echoing the strong diagonals in the lithos. At a techno concert there, large LED screens projected not dissimilar images of the gathered crowd. Quite unintentionally it all seemed to make perfect sense."
