I am happy to announce the solo exhibition, Cloud Level, organized by Gaye Chan at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. The exhibition highlights work that uses a combination of intaglio and screen print to depict landscapes diminished by massive oceans or infinite skies. Prints include Pouring on Jamestown, picturing the eastern side of Conanicut Island in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island, where impending storms of layered clouds hang low over the land; Winter Flounder, based on an old freeway exit ramp that, during cold months, transports the driver to an icy world with stone cliffs that resemble a mountain pass; and Leave Your Troubles Behind where an oddly monumental sun casts a golden glimmer on the ocean, fireworks explode in the distance and a small fishing vessel hurries away followed by a shrouded sea creature.
Cloud Level is on view at the Commons Gallery at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa from January 7 - February 8, 2019.
The exhibition runs concurrently with the Honolulu Printmakers 91st Annual Juried Exhibition, Juried by Jeffrey Dell, in the Main Gallery.
