Joe Fafard: In Print/Imprimer

fafardIn Prints/ Imprimer, a solo exhibition of works by internationally renowned, Joe Fafard; one of Canada’s most recognized and prolific artists. Although Fafard may be best known for his work in clay, bronze and steel sculpture, drawing and printmaking have been sustained curiosities throughout his artistic practice. Whether three-dimensional or two-dimensional, his work is characterized by his connection to his rural Saskatchewan roots, his reverence for art history and his inquiry into form.

The exhibition In Prints/ Imprimer presents woodblock, silkscreen, etchings, lithograph and embossed prints of cows, horses and bison, each series a response to or an extension of his sculptural process. While the embossed images offer beautifully subtle forms, the woodblocks are arresting in their colourful graphic quality. Reminiscent of Matisse’s paper cut-outs, these images have fluid, exaggerated and almost lyrical forms. Moving in varying degrees towards abstraction, the anatomy of these forms is broken down into pattern and embedded symbolic imagery. Perhaps in their subtlety, these works speak to the interconnection and dependence of human existence on agriculture and nature.

Curated and organized by the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery with funding assistance from the City of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskCulture, Saskatchewan Lotteries, and the Canada Council for the Arts. Toured through OSAC’s Arts on the Move program.
