Artist Statement Welcome to Reflections! This is my first solo show and I am thrilled to share with you the process of growth and self-discovery that I’ve experienced while developing the paintings for my exhibition. This mixed media series was inspired by the light of the north as well as by darkness born of lost loved ones. The spirit guide goddesses concept was revealed to me as if by magic. These portraitures embody particular archetypes that speak to each individual…

Video Pool Media Arts Centre, Unit 300-100 Arthur Street + Google Map

Portal Revisited 2019 is a revision of a responsive installation work that was begun in 1999 but wasn’t completed until this year. It uses iPhone 4’s to investigate how networked devices for human communication have dramatically transformed the intersections between our bodies, our consciousness and our machines. The phones are programmed to perform a series of specific behaviours that give them the appearance of sentience. The use of recorded audio and video, rotating motors, video capture to evolve the content,…

A Stew to Stand In – Marijana Mandusic

August 15, 2019 - September 7, 2019
Flux Gallery, 2 - 290 McDermot Ave
Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada
+ Google Map

A Stew to Stand In uses the flat plane of the canvas to activate a series of personal objects. Each object represented is powerful in its own right while simultaneously being only a skin of the physical painting itself. Employing the symbolism of still life painting, arranged personal objects bring up my own emotions like a burp that unintentionally contains barf. Subtle yet loaded, these still lifes become portraits that mirror myself, each one with knowing eyes that laugh back at…

Impromptu – Chris Chuckry

September 6, 2019 - September 17, 2019
Cre8ery Gallery and Studio, 125 Adelaide Street
Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada
+ Google Map

Artist Statement Impromptu departures represent a visual quest to find meaning in confusion. An unplanned exploration to discover something new, or perhaps, something unexpectedly familiar. Conceived as an antidote to increasingly boring academic study, these works draw on the practice of surrealist automatism,* as a departure point to a surprise destination. Not every journey is successful, and some are best forgotten. However, sometimes an image or an emotion can be pulled from the subconscious. In some ways, these images reflect…

Things Fall Apart

September 6, 2019 - October 26, 2019

A solo exhibition by Erika Dueck Curated by Peter Tittenberger As lovers and makers of craft, we are easily seduced by materiality, technical virtuosity, and outrageous expenditures of time. FAQs at exhibition openings are clear evidence: “What’s it made of? You did that by hand? Oh my gosh, how long did it take you?!” Using deceptively simple materials, lovingly and skillfully transformed with everyday tools over countless hours, Erika Dueck’s work had us at hello. And like all good craft,…

Between Temporal and Permanent Histories of Pain examines memory and a sense of time encased by conditions of the human body. Here, two projections overwhelmingly encompass the room to allow an invitation, and an experience in Coin Therapy (‘coining’) that is being performed in the videos. One of my mother and the other of my father, both bodies lie at rest and in motion on a serene white sheet. Each memory is subtly narrated by sounds that interrelate the visible…

Artist Statement You may be asking yourself “What the am I looking at?” What you’re seeing is the result of a person who doesn’t listen. After three decades of continuously having been told “No, don’t draw comics”, “Comics are for idiots, not real artists”, “No one cares about comics” and “Why bother?", I stopped listening.  I don’t break rules, I just tend to bend them. A lot. There are stories in my mind that I need to put into print and…

About the Show Although colour has been closely tied to emotion, what interests me primarily is to play with the tension of line and colour to express an abstract idea. This show is my thoughts on happiness, le bonheur de vie, expressed as my artful hours. For inspiration, I ruminate on experiences lived, reflections on a life already mostly unrolled. Although this show features my own journey replete with vicissitudes, rapture, and hopefully fully some insight, it is mostly the…
