Seasons of Togetherness incorporates drawing, collage, and animation in an installation about human interaction and connection. Inspired by fantasies found within thrift-store relationship guidebooks, self-help Internet articles, and step-by-step illustrations, Gillies has made a playful attempt to discover new ways to experience closeness with others and the world around. Source materials have been abstracted through processes of re-creation and interpretation, amplifying both the awkward strangeness and beauty that exist within formalities of expressing.

Created through a practice of working intuitively and experimentally, the exhibition navigates a meandering course across themes of human connection, social convention, and ritual.

With the generous support of the Winnipeg Arts Council with funding from the City of Winnipeg.
