One of my favourite mediums. I don’t get to work with print making often but when I do, I’m always so into the results. Couple of monotype prints, done in magenta.
It’s an overcast and gloomy day here in Winnipeg, so it’s the perfect time, to spend some time at my studio. A burst of colour is the perfect way to cut through the dreariness. Painted these in acrylic on canvas paper.
Slow Sunday here today, spent some time reviewing and editing footage, creating short pieces that carry the hazy recollection of memories. The feeling when you try and recall a moment and all you can find are the shapes and sounds of where you used to be.
This week I spent an evening at the studio, working with watercolours in a vibrant primary blue. After a long stressful day, I’m grateful to be able to sit down put my brush to the canvas and focus on being creative. It’s incredibly grounding, bringing me into the moment and letting the stress of the day fade away.
I was at my studio last night and I was editing some footage, layering and collaging images together and this sequence really stood out to me. I love how layering a sequence together can really speak to a specific state of mind. Last night i was feeling introspective, and this short piece speaks to that headspace.
It’s important to reflect and review your past work as an artist. Reflection leads to deeper insights that you may have not seen at the time you were working on the piece. It’s easy to forget about the work you have completed (or not completed), but to return is cathartic, and often inspiring. This piece is from 2009, repetitious and droning. I remember this afternoon clearly. And now I can see how that style has been a thread through all of my work.
Layering images, it’s beautiful thing. A couple of video stills that I inverted and collaged together.
I was able to film my mother as she recited one her beautiful poems. I wanted the short project to be a document of her work and it all came together so nicely. Channeling my art and creativity into the ones who are close to me is so satisfying. Excited for more collabs!
Repost. One of my favourite things to do is collaborate with my Partner. This is a short I did with him a few years back. I love watching this, and how he works. It was such a warm evening in June and I loved every minute, capturing this moment with him.
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!
