Walter Procska, Artist's Folding Instructions #8, 2016, screenprint, edition of 9, paper size: 30.25" x 38".

Walter Procska’s prints are filled with shapes that are often strongly mathematical. Like Kandinsky and other artists as well as scientists, he feels a strong sense of spirituality in mathematical forms. Notwithstanding the circuitous course of our daily lives and our thought processes, many of his lines fight to be straight, to find the shortest distance between two points. This is often how we remember and plan, that is, in a pared-down, simplified way that we should know cannot be fully trusted. His minutely offset screens express that uncertainty that at the same time that they suggest visual depth.

Walter Procska was born in Quebec and has lived in Toronto since 1994. Procska studied Fine Arts at Concordia University. He received the Helen McNicoll Art Prize in 1976. Collections include: Bank of Montreal, CIBC Wood Gundy, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM Canada, Mississauga City Hall, National Bank of Canada, Sakimi Art Museum, The Export/Import Bank of Japan.
