“My interdisciplinary practice is driven by a keen interest in the power of storytelling and the connections I see between contemporary society, the human psyche, and our relationship with the natural world. The works in Beauty and Folly combine metaphor, material, moving image and sound to examine the psychological complexities of living in a shifting world.”
“My works assign personal and altered narratives to familiar objects and stories, transforming them to reorient thinking about our relationships with the planet, other species, and each other. They draw on the female body and voice (often my own) as a frame of reference, and on the influence of ecology, pop culture, and myth. The gallery becomes a place where we can re- conceive our interconnections with the organic and inorganic world, and where moments of self-awareness and unease are translated into shared experiences and wonder.”
The opening night vernissage & reception will take place at the OSA Main Gallery in the ByWard Market on

Thursday February 21, 2019 from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Admission is free.

This free exhibition runs from February 21 to March 31, 2019.
