Remembering Former Winnipeg City Councillor Harvey Smith

Martha Street Studio wouldn't be the same without former Winnipeg City Councillor Harvey Smith. Smith was a proud supporter of the arts. From advocating for the Manitoba Printmakers Association Inc. in early days, through print workshops organized at the Daniel MacIntyre School Division through to being the driver in our first ever Steamroller Print Festival (as pictured above). We will miss you Harvey!

New folio of prints by Denis Lessard

h_éros by Denis Lessard

h_éros by Denis Lessard

Folio of three screen printed images in folder, edition of ten

printed by Andrew Lodwick

Image size: 12 x 9 inches on 21 x 15 inch paper



Each print presents a pairing of images in two vibrant colours : historical artworks in printmaking by Crispijn van de Passe and Cornelis Cornelisz van Haarlem, superimposed with figures from vintage and current advertising.

As suggested in the project’s title, the idea is to put forward the homoreoticism in the mythological or advertising hero figure. The project was triggered especially by my discovery of the very sexy works by 16th century Dutch printmaker and painter, Cornelis Cornelisz van Haarlem. As well, h_éros is a continuation of my earlier printmaking projects such as L’Air/Maillol and La cuisine, which I have developed in the 1990s (printed by Peter Braune at New Leaf Editions in Vancouver) and Tendresses in the early 2000s (printed by Francine Turcotte at Atelier Presse Papier in Trois-Rivières).
