This untitled group exhibition brings together a variety of print works that examine Elizabeth D’Agostino, Mi Hyang Kim, and Michelle Murillo’s relationship to place.

Elizabeth D’Agostino (Toronto) builds sculptural forms from the delicate impressions of her intaglio plates and installs the new forms together with a series of images of repeated motif to create a dreamlike landscape that hovers between the domestic and the wild. Her work combines elements of the familiar and the strange, urban and the natural to create new hybrid forms that speak to D’Agostino’s daily life and to broader processes of acclimatization and adaptation in one’s environment. D’Agostino received her BFA from the University of Windsor and her MFA from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, IL. She has exhibited in Canada and internationally including Iziko: Museum of Cape Town, South Africa, Manhattan Graphics Center, New York, and The Print Center, Philidelphia. Her work is in many collections including the University of Changchun Jilin, China; Frans Masareel Centrum, Belgium and Ernst and Young, Canada.

Mi Hyang Kim (Vancouver/Soeul) creates prints that explore her relationship to the natural world and to her daily experiences through her unique printing process that combines woodcut engraving and paper casting. Kim’s works are imbued with a dense physicality from the means of their production that acts as an additional layer of sensation seething beneath her images of natural forms, domestic objects and conglomerates of eastern and western landscapes. Kim holds a BFA (1986) from the Hong Ik (Hongdae) University in Seoul City, South Korea and earned a Master of Printmaking at the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Hong Ik University in 2001. She has had solo exhibits in Korea and Japan, and group exhibitions in Japan (2001 International Print Biennial, Kanagawa – Prize of Excellence, 2001), and Seoul, Korea (20th Grand Art Exhibition of Jangang, Prize of Excellence) and works in the collection of the Kyoto Seika University of Japan and the Yokahama Museum.

Michelle Murillo (Texas/California) uses print to establish a visual expression of the complexities of memory. In her piece Landed Murillo prints a poem inscribed on the walls of the barrack at Angel Island Immigration Station onto sheets of slumped glass. Angel Island housed immigrants as they awaited entrance into the United States. Between 1910‐1940 175,000 Chinese immigrants entered the country through Angel Island. The poem speaks to the immigrants’ journey while at the same time engaging with the artifact as a document that attests to the experience of immigration in the early Twentieth Century. Murillo received a MFA in Printmaking from the University of Alberta, (2006) and a BFA in Painting from Boston University (2003). She is an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Arlington. Her works have been exhibited in the US, Canada, South America and Europe including The Latino Cultural Center, Dallas, Texas, The Haydon Art Center, Buenos Aires, Argentina, The Los Angeles Printmaking Society 19th National Exhibition, (Juror’s Award), Riverside Art Museum, California, The 5th Biennale Internationale d’ Estampe Contemporaine de Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada. She has been awarded grants from The Alberta Foundation for the Arts, The Canada Research Council. Artist residencies include: Proyecto’ace, SUB 30 Residency, Buenos Aires, Argentina and the Kala Art Institute, Berkeley, California.
