Water is to the world what blood is to our bodies.
Leonardo Da Vinci c. 1513, found in "vetturale di natura" ("the vehicle of nature")
In WATER MARK, on view from January 17th to April 4th, 2010 at Gallery Stratford, Gerard Brender à Brandis, Brian Holden and Lucinda Jones explore the Grand River and the surrounding landscape using several different printmaking techniques, including wood block engraving, mono-print and serigraphy.
The three-person exhibition is formally organized around the appearance of ‘water’ in the natural world and its contemporary representation in print. WATER MARK showcases the framed fine art prints of Brender à Brandis, Holden and Jones, as well as each print maker’s source material.
