The Department of Art and Design at Azusa Pacific University presents High Water,a solo exhibition and large scale screen-printing workshop by Devon Tsuno. In his first body of work using risograph and screen-printing processes, High Water is an educational exhibition, inaugurating the first in a series of new Windgate Workshops hosted by the Department of Art and Design.
For over a decade, Tsuno has wandered the San Gabriel River drainage system, a stone’s throw from the APU campus, documenting the disjunctive economic and topographic relationship between streams and rock quarries. The product of this disjunctive relationship has created an area of “hard-rock” quarry mining water flowing through a "managed" natural landscape.
Tsuno will collaborate and create works with students, using a large-scale format 60 x 84 inch screen print, on handmade Japanese Kochi Mashi Washi paper. This will provide students the opportunity to learn through real world work experience. The new workshop is made possible with generous support from the Windgate Foundation and presents students with the unique opportunity to work side-by-side with professional artists like Tsuno, by collaborating, discussing and creating tangible works.
