This printmaking collective started at the University of Regina’s Fine Arts program, when four print-making students decided to continue working together after the conclusion of their undergrad studies. Michelle Brownridge, Amber Dalton, Karli Jessup and Caitlin Mullan are the nucleus of the Articulate Ink collective. Their mission as a print collective is to provide the public, local artists and recent graduates with an accessible, environmentally conscious printmaking studio fostering a contemporary, active print culture in Regina. By providing educational programs, community access and collaborative editioning opportunities, Articulate Ink exists to encourage and support the appreciation of printmaking arts and hand-made products. www.articulateink.ca
Jason Cawood & Blair Fornwald
Jason Cawood and Blair Fornwald are two thirds of the artist collective Turner Prize*. Working together with John G. Hampton (currently in Toronto completing a Masters of Visual Studies at the UofT), they explore themysterious, social and translative properties of the “creative act,” focusing on slippages between ideas and their representation. Their investigations utilize the language of dream analysis and interpretation, ritual and magick, and appropriate the aesthetics of mid-century pop psychology and psychedelia. Formed in early 2008, the collective has presented performance, photography, video, and installation-based work across Canada and the United States.
