My Winnipeg II























My Winnipeg II.
Copper Etching, Hand Coloured.
45.5cm x 45.5cm. 2010.

Finally, after a few weeks back at the studio I have a new print to show. As the title indicates, this print is similar to My Winnipeg from a few years back, but with more of a downtown focus of Winnipeg, since most of my activities have shifted to downtown. The routes and buildings depicted in this piece lie along my bike and bus route to the studio and are places I come by every day. To me, they are all very typically Winnipeg; they are part of Winnipeg's face and character and they are part of what I enjoy about Winnipeg.
The sharing of the title with Guy Maddin's film is a coincidence; I didn't know about the film until after I printed my first edition in April 2007. It is simply My Winnipeg, my experience and my perception.
