Some of you know that in addition to photography, I am an abstract painter. I work with oil, acrylic, and tempera most often. I also do digital art. I have a website devoted to my multimedia visual art here. I just added a new gallery of paintings I did in 2015 on the theme of mental health.
My photography from Radical Citizen Media is currently featured as part of the Art + Activism exhibit at the Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC Project Space.
In terms of media coverage, my work has been profiled in Windspeaker/Alberta Sweetgrass, particularly my documentation of Indigenous protests.
As well, Shaw TV has done a segment on my activism and photography:
The opening of Art + Activism on August 31 was a huge success. The Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC Project Space was filled to capacity for much of the evening. I had a lot of positive comments about my work, and the Edmonton Journal covered the event for part of that week’s Social Seen. This was actually the second time I have been in Social Seen this summer. In July, I was photographed with a friend and her children at Interstellar Rodeo.
Here is the summary of the opening from Visual Art Alberta’s newsletter:
The date of the opening reception for the Art + Activism exhibit is August 31. Below is the official poster with all of the pertinent information!
I am very pleased to be back with VUE Weekly as a photographer. There have been a number of editorial changes over at the Edmonton’s alternative weekly in the last month or so, and I will also be writing music reviews of releases from local acts.
Another photography development (see what I did there?) is the forthcoming exhibit “Art + Activism” at Visual Arts Alberta. Launching on August 31, the exhibit features my photography of rallies and protests over the last decade, as well as a photographic timeline of 2016 events. I will be sharing the gallery walls with the paintings of Mary Joyce (who is also one of my colleagues in the Edmonton Coalition Against War and Racism) and Juan Lopezdabdoub.
