ABOUT / ARTIST STATEMENT

"This was my first trip to Winnipeg and I was pretty charmed by it. It feels a bit like an alternate dimension Edmonton but a bit grungier, a bit more 70s, really rad. I took inspiration from the colours of the buildings and the old school signs here, and that 70s vibe, and made this still life that hints at vintage sci-fi paperback novels. The objects straddle a river, a reference to the black and white piece above with text from Katherena Vermette."
