navigating unsteadiness

Navigating Unsteadiness

Navigating Unsteadiness was the name of my first solo show, held at the Centre for Creative Arts in Grande Prairie, AB in October of 2018.

Abridged artist statement:

My work is a translation of my current poetry practice through the medium of paint and collage dealing with obstruction and illegibility. By purposefully crossing out words or whole stanzas at a time the work is able to be viewed without the explicitness of a diary, but with the same character and effectiveness.  My work functions as a declaration and a reminder of the need to be reflective of one’s emotions, rather than specifying a legible and concrete message. The uncertainty of the text ensures the universality of interpretation – it is not so personal that the viewer is unable to relate to the work in front of them.
