Ciel et terre IV
November 2 to 30, 2005
ESPACE TROIS, Montreal, October 20, 2005 – Espace Trois
is pleased to exhibit Montreal artist Ann McCall’s continuing explorations into a nature-based world.
This will be Part IV of an ongoing series about sky and earth. The artist is including both mixed
media works on paper and collagraph prints which give visual expression to her feelings about
landscape. The artist’s work is an extension of herself; as her life evolves so does
her art. These works give visual existence to her thoughts and feelings as she continues to produce
new and personal solutions to her observations of natural phenomena such as threatening skies
or mystical light. These images relate to powerful forces felt by humans when we experience the
effects of the sun beating down or the forces of rain and wind around us. Within these colourful
works the viewer can move from a warm sun filled experience in one corner of a work to a tempestuous
rainy section in another. The works often show a natural light with a mysterious quality
representing an uncertainty in the forces of nature.
Ann McCall’s work has evolved over a 30 year period. From her first silk
screen prints exhibited in 1976 through her collagraph printing which she began in 1997, to
her more recent mixed media works the artist presents us with a vital, consistent, and personal
approach to image making. She has had fifty solo exhibitions throughout Canada, Australia
and the United States plus over two hundred and fifty group exhibitions in North and
South America, Europe, Australia and Asia. In Montreal, she works in the printmaking studio
where she has been a member since 1999.
Ann McCall has been teaching serigraphy in the printmaking department of the
School of Fine Arts since 1992 and this will be her second solo exhibition in Espace Trois.
Vernissage: Wednesday, November 2 from 5 to 8 pm
The artist will be present.
Espace Trois is an exhibition space of the School of Fine Arts within the Saidye
