Well I made it through the holidays! Most of my time was spent with either the family or in the studio preparing for my upcoming exhibition at Loop Gallery. I was busy right up to the end of January finishing the last bit of details for my upcoming show titled "Nature Collapse". I've created a new body of work in the last year that includes, drawings, prints, sculpture and digital prints from video stills.
Working with the notion of longing and belonging, Nature Collapse examines relationships within the natural world inspired by botanical and entomological research. Elizabeth D’Agostino
draws from observational notes and re-counts specific sites to create
new roles within a fabricated landscape. By assembling hybridized forms,
objects of curiosity and deliberate combinations of biological imagery,
Nature Collapse reflects the integration between form and function
within the natural world. www.loopgallery.ca
During my visit to the Sault and the AGA, I also had the opportunity to visit Andrea Pinheiro from the Fine Arts Department at Algoma University. It was a quick visit to see the printshop and meet the students. I was glad to see that the large Takach press from White Mountain Academy was in good hands with Andrea!
We spent the afternoon printing several of my video stills on the Epson, which will be exhibited in my upcoming exhibition at Loop Gallery.
