Panel Discussion: Works on Paper as Works in Progress
Saturday, April 25, 2015, Noon
Presented by Canadian Art

"Throughout much of art history, works on paper have been considered preparatory objects rather than final products. This talk, moderated by Caoimhe Morgan-Feir, interim online editor at Canadian Art, will investigate contemporary iterations of paper’s provisional nature. Do today’s unprocessed photographs, erased sketches, and additive images hold clues about the art form’s history and potential?"

Moderator: Caoimhe Morgan-Feir
Speakers: Jérôme Nadeau, Laura Simon, and Amanda Clyne

 

Studio Immersion

November 2014 - April 2015

I built a new body of work at a secluded cottage in the Canadian north. The new paintings build on the experiments I recently pursued at grad school, but are quite different than any of my past work.
