I am showing a few shots from the opening night of “ImMigration Project” just to give some idea of how the show looks, which is pretty great. I am one of a great many printmakers from all over the place who have sent in their many interpretations and various techniques of the theme of immigration, but also of migration in general, of any sort. To live on our planet is to move with life and it’s demands upon us. Some of us move often, some very far or not so far. The idea of borders is a purely human construction of the mind, with many sad events as a result.
Some of the printmakers focus on the human tragedies and death camps. Some focus instead on seasonal animal migrations that are now also about climate change. All the images share ideas about the purpose of migration and immigration; for a better life, or for food, or to escape horror and war.
