Various prints and other multimedia works.

The PrintStudio-Reflections and Divergences- Amelia Jiménez

Members Gallery – Bling -Hitoko Okada

Reflections and Divergences is an exhibition in two parts—a series of digital prints, and an installation created from recycled etchings. As the title suggests, the works reference something “other,” existing in times and places different from the images and objects on view.

Bling! is a humourous response to our economic downturn and is a satirical questioning of our consumerist social values. The candy colored gems are a playful irony of our culture of excess and acquisitions of status and luxury. Each piece in the collection is one of a kind, handmade and screen printed on 100% cotton jersey. Bling! is a product of our current economic recession
