Gallery Show

I’m so excited to share that I am having my FIRST gallery show. It’s something I’ve been working towards, and it’s wonderful to finally see it coming together. Opening on October 4th, it’s a collaborative show, myself and 3 other artists, and includes recent abstract works! The poster background for the show is actually one of the pieces that I’ll have on display! If you happen to be in Winnipeg, come on down and check out my work!

New Work

It’s been a busy summer, at work and in my studio. I recently completed a new series based on old letters from my Mom, collaged onto pieces of wood given to me by my Dad. The art feels expressive and biographical, and really came from a place of self-reflection. When you are up close to the piece, you can see that most of the letters date back to 1996, the year I officially left home. My Mother was processing her new life without her son around, and these pieces commemorate that moment.

Art

While film is my primary medium, painting is my oldest. Starting when I was young, I mentored under my mom, Vivian Paschke, an established rural Manitoban artist.  I work with a variety of materials, but I tend to gravitate towards watercolors and acrylic.
