Saskia Jetten

Saskia Jetten

April 18-June 22, 2014 (Upper Gallery)
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 17, 2014, 7-9pm

Saskia Jetten is a contemporary Dutch printmaker who has recently immigrated to Canada and now resides in the Fraser Valley, where she operates a print studio. Jetten works in a wide variety of media including graphite, woodcut, and stone lithography, as well as materials such as silks and ceramics. Her work touches on themes related to theatre, identity, and inter-personal relationships, and she often uses the face (or the mask) as a starting point for an artwork. Continually pushing the boundaries of printmaking, Jetten has exhibited widely in both Europe and Canada, and has received numerous prizes, most notably the ‘Grafiek Nu 10’ Dutch Printmaking Award. In 2012 she was the recipient of the Alain Piroir Studio Residency Prize in Montreal, Quebec, as well as the International Contemporary Print Biennale in Trois Rivieres, Quebec. www.saskiajetten.com
