Born in Edmonton, Patrick Bulas received both his BFA and MFA from the University of Alberta. He now lives in Saskatoon and is the printmaking studio technician and sessional instructor at the University of Saskatchewan as well as a founding member of Ink Slab Printmakers. Bulas has spent the past several years exploring the wonder and beauty of phenomena studied in physics and astronomy through woodcut, etching, and mezzotint. The series of mezzotint prints currently displayed in the Rental and Sales Gallery are inspired by his cat Lucy and her imagined interactions with other animals. The traditional printmaking technique provides for highly refined images and Bulas’ attention to detail gives the work a sense of reality while depicting a fantastical storybook world.
