Walter Procska is drawn to geometry and feels a strong sense of spirituality in mathematical forms. In spite of the circuitous course of our daily lives and 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 screenprints express that uncertainty whilst at the same time suggesting visual depth.
Procska was born in Quebec and has lived in Toronto since 1994. He studied Fine Arts at Concordia University and received the Helen McNicoll Art Prize in 1976. Collections include Bank of Montreal, CIBC Wood Gundy, Glaxo Smith Kline, IBM Canada, Mississauga City Hall, National Bank of Canada, Sakimi Art Museum, The Export/Import Bank of Japan.
