Allan Geske

Allan Geske has been a printmaker since the mid-1970s and he employs various techniques in his art such as etching, engraving, relief and mixed media. His images often include the prairie landscape: maps, charts and blueprints that locate our place in the world and language that integrates the letters, words, symbols and markings of the draughtsman, poet and educator. Geske has travelled extensively and his prints are metaphors that create disparate associations relating to his sense of home and place of origin. Two recent prints, titled Atlas Vignette and Prairie Orbs, are highlighted in this exhibition.
