I currently have a print in the exhibition A Show of Hands, up at A1 LabArts and showing during this year’s SGCI conference in Knoxville Tennessee. I was invited into the exhibition by Adam Finkelston, the editor of The Hand Magazine – a publication dedicated to printmaking and photography. Two other Calgary artists are also part of the show: Jacqueline Huskisson and Greaeme Dearden, both ACAD grads.
I wrote an article for SNAP to accompany the BIMPE exhibition that opened this month. An excerpt:
“Image construction means focusing our attention down towards the picture space and moving in, rather than out, to take in the whole image. When we look at a small image, we, as the viewer, dive into the picture and deliberately project ourselves into the details, a much different act of looking than when a large image engulfs us.”

This week, my work is part of an exhibition that coincides with ACAD’s symposium FIELDWORK: Artistic Research, Ethics and Academic Freedom taking place this week from March 12th – 19th. My work explores intersections between illness and identity and these prints specifically explore the sometimes banal (e.g. taking medication) but strangely heightened daily medical activities that are part of illness management. Both are part of my The Body, Stranger series. The exhibition and symposium events are free and open to the public.
