Artist Talk: Ruminations of Order – CityScape Community Art Space
The North Vancouver Community Arts Council presents an Artist Talk in conjunction with the Ruminations of Order exhibition at CityScape Community Art Space. Join Angela Gooliaf, Judy D. Shane and Debbie Westergaard Tuepah delve into their processes and inspirations.
About the Exhibit: Four emerging artists investigate the bombardment and accessibility of information in the 21st Century. Specifically how technologies allow us to delve deep into the micro and grapple with the macro. Through this experience is the possibility of new imaginings or remapping of art traditions. The artists’ work in the gaps between forms and genres, their processes create new ways of considering information. Through experimentation with diverse materials, they cleverly reveal patterns and repetition, which results in introspective installations, sculptures, drawings and photographs.
Angela Gooliaf uses parody and exaggeration to study the process of creating new shapes via the repetition of recognizable biological forms such as ants and flowers. Moving between traditional drawing mediums and digital technologies, Angela examines human behavior, social systems, and scientific theories, creating new forms of order by developing connections between the unexpected. Angela has a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art & Design and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Regina.
Judy D. Shane merges the handmade and the technical by using digital photography to record detailed information located in individual sculpted strokes of paint. Focusing on the part, and the part as a composited whole, her large-scale compositions address repetition, patterning and mathematical ordering. Judy has a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art & Design.
Debbie Westergaard Tuepah is inspired by her background in database marketing. Her paint globule sculptures and networks of yarn dipped in acrylic operate between forms and genres. These uncertain objects in uncertain spaces question painting and sculpture, line and volume, the masculine and the feminine, and the implications of consumerist technologies on human behavior. Debbie has a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art & Design and a diploma of Marketing Management from BCIT.
