Sean Caulfield is Canada Research Chair in Printmaking, and Professor in the Department of Art and Design at the University of Alberta. Caulfield makes intaglio prints of great beauty and technical mastery. Recently, he has turned to interdisciplinary and collaborative work, producing artists’ books in collaboration with creative writers.  Caulfield is in the midst of a big exhibition and publication project through which internationally recognized artists, scientists and social scientists examine the complex ethical, legal and social issues raised by biotechnology. Caulfield’s recent prints “suspend “viewers between a number of associations including historic scientific illustrations, fictional science, and biological forms, while simultaneously suggesting an imagined world of myth or religious cosmology.” He has exhibited widely, and won awards including the Triennial Prize at the 2nd Bangkok Triennial International Print and Drawing Exhibition.

Sean Caulfield will be accompanied by his wife, Akiko Taniguchi, an accomplished printmaker with work featured in the Art Gallery exhibition.
