There is something about a multiple, about seeing the same image reproduced - doubled, tripled, quadrupled, multiplied! - that inspires a deep breath of satisfaction. Not only is the fascination with the increase of quantity brought into play but also the quality in the similarity of each print to the other. Pulled BC 2/2 satisfies the desire for exactitude of sameness. Reproduction (multiplying) is, after all, a basic concept of life.
Originality is built into the print; first, through the artist's concept; second, through the formation of a physical trace (drawing on the plate, inking the acetate, taking the photograph) and third, through the print-making medium. Pulled BC 2/2 consists of original works for these prints are made through the traditional techniques of silkscreen, intaglio, lithography, etching, woodblock, rubber stamp, colography and drypoint.
Pulled BC 2/2 will also feature 12 Midnite, renowned low brow Vancouverite, and have the full series of his Pop silk screens titled, Gunland, (Headbones Gallery, Vernon, 1998). 12 Midnite will perform from his CD Suicide Ride at the opening reception on August 7 from 4-7 PM.
With a line up of print makers working from Germany ( Bodos Korsig, Nancy Watt), London (Tyler Bright Hilton), New York (Jesse McCloskey, Katia Santibanez), Montreal (Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo), Toronto (Larry Eisenstein, Ortansa Moraru, Dave Sheppard, Daryl Vocat), Saskatchewan (Jefferson Little). Cranbrook (Manwoman) and Salmon Arm (Steve Mennie). The prints are as diverse as their origins. The overall tie-in is excellence. Pulled BC 2/2 is an extended tribute to the printmakers and to their images.
