The organic life force that breathes below and above the surface of the earth provides the focus for this exhibition, which celebrates the regenerative spirit of nature in its insistent cyclicality, and its powers of physical, spiritual and universal inter-connectedness.
The Trilateral Print Exchange Exhibition is hosted by SPA, in Japan. Malaspina Printmakers Society from Vancouver, Canada and Grafisch Atelier Utrecht from Utrecht, Holland are the co-hosts. Heather Aston has 8 pieces touring in this exhibition that includes 20 artists from Canada, 20 artists from Holland and 25 artists from Japan.
The Exhibition is held under the theme “Re-Identification”. It is a good opportunity for both the artists and the audience to see personal reflection and re-assessment, that is, to re-identify themselves through the prints created by the artists from the three countries.
