Meet the Broadsheet Artist
Briar Craig is a printmaking professor at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus. He has an MFA in printmaking from the University of Alberta. His recent work focuses on the interplay between imagery and text. Taking Roland Barthes’ Death of the Author as a starting point he plays with the idea that we are all the authors of the works we see by juxtaposing a number of disparate elements in order to create narrative, interpretive opportunities for the viewer.
