James ‘Caz’ Bently
Waterloo, ON
(519) 404-5010

A graduate of the University of Waterloo (BFA Fine Arts with a minor in Classics), Caz began to work in wood block prints upon inheriting a ‘show card’ press. Because working in surface grain did not allow sufficient detail, he machined some end grain blocks and working in the medium of wood engraving. The images were his own interpretations of the conventions of Celtic art and knotwork patterns. Caz is also one of the past contributors to ‘Reflections of the Conquest’ at the Woodstock Museum.

" These specific images are a revisiting of the subject of the Lewis Chess pieces. The expressive nature of the carving on these artifacts has interested me for many years. I have always wondered how they ended up on a beach in the Hebrides. In these images I speculate on how they may have arrived at their final resting place. "
