Here’s a wonderful article written by Erin Doblanko about my exhibition at SNAP. Its always great when someone’s impression of your work matches your intentions. Thank-you, Erin!
I recently packed up my exhibition in SNAP’s mainspace. The exhibition featured two brand-new works, part of my large plexiglass series dealing with space, perception and collapsed time. Both works are 6 feet x 4 feet.
I teach at the Alberta College of Art + Design and am fortunate to work in both the School of Visual Arts (SVA where I teach print and first-year studies) and the School of Craft + Emerging Media (SC + EM where I teach printing on cloth). SC+EM has recently started its own website which highlights events, visiting artists, research and exhibitions by both faculty and students – its worth a visit and a snoop through the posts.
I’ve begun working on some new pieces that examine my experiences living with MS and inflammatory arthritis. While I am lucky that my disease is so far on the mild end of the spectrum, it has nonetheless shaped me and brought me into contact with drugs and aspects of medical practice that are outside the experience of many people. I seek to bring my own adventures to light and examine them within the greater context of contemporary medicine. To start, I’ve created some small etchings that touch on the internally sensed aspect of my illnesses. Find new works under my The Body, Stranger page under the Artworks header.
My work is on thePeople of Print website directory. The site is worth a visit as you can spend hours snooping through links to all kinds of artists and studios from fine art to commercial whose work relates to print in some way.
This gallery contains 2 photos.
Sometimes when I am stressed, I take some of that nervous energy and apply it to the studio. Its either that or bad TV and the chocolate dregs in the cupboard.
If you are reading this and you are not me, then holy crap I apologize for the crappy state of my website! I am slowly working on it and I do mean slow. So its quite a mess, please feel free to visit www.heatherhuston.blogspot.com for a glimpse of my work and what I’ve been up to in the meantime while I quietly organize my work on here. Hit me up with questions/interesting thoughts/videos that aren’t of cats doing what I’m sure are interesting things to some people at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, please enjoy a recent print:
