See my Exhibition at the Button Factory Arts in Waterloo!

Not everyone is from Waterloo, ON so I wanted to share my exhibition at the Button Factory Arts in Waterloo, ON.

The exhibition is from January 17- February 1, 2020.

The group exhibition is called Friends & Lovers and is curated by Tee Kundu.

There is a variety of art forms including photographs, paintings and a community quilt project among others!

I have three works shown at the exhibition. The two smaller photographs are from my Patched series where I embed map paper into areas of the tree where the bark peels always. The larger photograph is titled Nestled and included twisted strips of map paper.

Here is the description of the exhibition:

If love is a feeling and care is an action, they are always engaged in conversation. As we navigate our lives, these conversations become increasingly important in shaping our stories. Drawing on personal lived experiences as archival knowledge of histories and possible futures, our identities are forged through our relationships with one another. Friends & Lovers explores the ways in which care, vulnerability & intimacy contribute to our sense of community. Who are you in love with? And how?

Patched

Patched is an ongoing photography series where I make interventions with nature using handmade paper. I make paper from old maps and insert the pulp into the missing areas of bark on trees and logs commenting on how change impacts the environment. These actions occur in parks where areas are curated in a way to represent a forest. I leave the interventions in the environment for them to weather and age over time. These moments of where the paper meet the bark offers a reward for the viewer who lives a busy life and may not often notice the little things.

The paper itself is an offering back to the tree as a previous tree created the paper. The act of adding pulp to the bark presents an idea of healing and mending the natural environment in a way that a bandage might heal or protect a wound.

Here is a recent installation titled Grazing. The installation features a stop motion animation of farm fields from in and around my hometown, three sculptures -wooden structures with dyed burlap and pulp and a pile of twisted maps.
