Flowers from a Distance — Slow Editions
Flowers from a Distance, 2017
Alicia Nauta and Eunice Luk
Edition of 200
10" x 8", 32 p.
Riso printed cover and interior
Nauta and Luk's interest in horticulture and flora led the artists to the creation of their fourth title together. Photos culled from the artists' daily encounters with local plants and flowers in both Canada and Japan are presented in conjunction with new collaborative works, collages by Nauta and drawings by Luk. Photographs in high contrast appear deliberately graphic alongside drawings and collages. A reflection and contemplation on their different surroundings, Flowers from a distance offers a glimpse into a long distance friendship and ongoing collaboration.
