Artist Statement:

“Within the breadth of art mediums, the art-form of Printmaking is one of the most misunderstood, or should I say misinterpreted. It would be fair to say, in most cases, it is with the notion of a multiple image, which is falsely aligned with the process of commercial reproduction. One only needs to consider significant artists that have dedicated themselves to the medium, such as Kiki Smith, Rita Letendre, Jeannie Thib, Otis Tamasauskas, David Blackwood, Stu Oxley, Frederick Hagan, Edvard Munch, Mimmo Paladino, Helen Frankenthaler, Kathe Kollwitz, George Baselitz – among many others - to understand the uniqueness of what this art-form brings to artistic self-expression.

Reflecting on my own passionate involvement for, and with this medium, has allowed me to consider why expressing myself in Printmaking - specifically Stone Lithography - has been a long-lasting commitment since my formative years at the Ontario College of Art (OCA) during the 1970’s.

Ultimately, as an artist, I express myself in several different mediums - drawing, painting, sculpture, and printmaking. That said, each of these approaches develops from the basis of drawing. Drawing is the “soul” source of my visual expression, and I quickly realized all those years ago at OCA that printmaking offered a “differing” way of drawing, while using diverse - and sometimes unconventional - means, surfaces, and tools.

The process of creating and realizing unique, multiple images within the medium has become “ritualistic” in process, and a frame of mind - an essential aspect of creation for me." - Ted Fullerton, 2024
