B.C. Artist Lone Tratt is Celebrating 50 years of Printmaking with a Retrospective Exhibition
The exhibition will include works that the artist has produced from 1970-2020 and will feature many traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques.
Dundarave Print Workshop + Gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC invites you to celebrate Lone Tratt’s 50 years of Printmaking with us.
Lone was born in Denmark to a family gifted with artistic abilities. She started painting lessons at age 9 and received at age 21 a Bachelor’s degree from the Interior Design School of Copenhagen.
A couple of years later she left her homeland for Canada but continued her studies in art, including
a 4 year program at the Saidye Bronfman Centre in Montreal. She has worked as an artist all her life and has taught drawing, painting and printmaking for more than 40 years. Her prints and paintings have been exhibited in Montreal, New York, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Denmark. They can be found in many public and private collections in Canada, the United States, Europe and Saudi Arabia.
On moving to Vancouver in 1991, she joined the Dundarave Print Workshop + Gallery, and that same year, created the printmaking school at that Workshop, a school she ran for 13 years.
Lone is fortunate to be able to communicate with the world using a visual language that requires immense skill but is otherwise restricted only by the imagination. Using a variety of printmaking techniques, such as etching, dry point, intaglio, viscosity and mono printing, she carefully crafts multiple dimensions of nature, sometimes airy and suspended as floating in space, other times grounded and highly figurative. She loves to twist and bend forms derived from what she loves most: rocks, water, trees and earth.
The exhibit, showing prints from the 1970s to the present, will be hung in salon style and will feature prints executed using many traditional and contemporary techniques.
