Richard Palanuk (b. Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)
“With my recent journey into printmaking, I see my work as fiction based on fact and it all begins with my camera. I record images that somehow find me. Once I start playing with these visual impressions, they begin to take on a life of their own. It can be quite exhilarating to experience this transformation as the images become visual metaphors for inner thoughts and emotions.”
