Printmaking Projects


In celebration of SNAP‘s 30th anniversary, we have curated a collection of prints from individuals who have shaped SNAP into the Artists-Run Association that it is today. From the founders to current renters these individuals are essential contributors to SNAP‘s ongoing success. This collection is a diverse depiction of how SNAP has involved and engaged society members and the public to the printmaking media.

David Armstrong

David Scott Armstrong

This is what compression is: a geological epoch
rendered to a slice of rock you hold between
your finger and your thumb.
– from The Geology of Norway by Jan Zwicky

And, this is what an image is: a compression, a stretch of distance “rendered to a slice” – and held. The holding which takes place within the print Between Hand And Moon is a compression of object and light. An object (a discarded piece of glass) held in the hand. And the light, which reflects off and refracts through this held glass fragment, creating the image that is seen here. Things are seen through by distance and light – a slice, which opens the eyes.

David Scott Armstrong is a print artist with a particular interest in the entwining of things, natural process, and the act of looking. He explores instances of perceptual and material threshold by folding together of elements of printmaking, photography, and process-based serial drawing. His prints have been presented in solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the US, Estonia, Brazil and Japan. He received a MFA from the University of Western Ontario and a BFA from the University of Alberta. In 2003 he joined the Faculty of Fine Arts at York University where he is an Associate Professor teaching in the Print Media Area.

Derek Besant

Cities are in a state of constant redevelopment on construction sites at street level where pedestrians must negotiate around debris, as part of their daily routines. The presence of displacement has an effect on these scenarios grounded in pure physics: _where every action has an equal and opposite reaction. My image of this state of change is reflective of earthquakes, tsunamis, natural disasters, war zones or ancient ruins. The figurative elements could be those who are no longer in this site, or it could be a shadow cast by the viewer – as a link between the present and past…

Black and white evokes a certain way of reading an image in the wake of a contemporary color world, whereby time also can be directed to stand perfectly still. My work often engages with making the visible, invisible, and the familiar, unfamiliar. This work premieres first in 2012 at Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the Northern International Biennial, also at Phoenix Brighton Contemporary Art UK, and on six outdoor sites across Venice, Italy under the title: Hidden & Forbidden Cities.
