I live in Dawson City, a remote, northern community in Yukon, Canada. I spend most of my time struggling with mental health issues, which i’ve recently started to blame on the capitalist system & overall fucked up world, & this has been going well for me. My artistic practice is a blundering convergence of video, text, & still imagery. The bulk of my creations for the past years have been video, with a recent return to painting. Soon i expect these two worlds will rather violently collide & i’m here for it. Oh, & almost everything i make is pink.
I’m obsessed w hyper-saturated (pink), frenetically edited, & repetitively looped images. Most of my work is incredibly anxious (odd) & i spend lots of time watching bad sci-fi and wondering about potential futures (hence anxiety). I often edit tf out of everything, reflecting on the intersection between the world & humans i suppose, likely to desperately try to situate ourselves (this has been going not so well).
But basically the overarching theme of what i’m actually trying to say is: the world is fucked, the bees are all dying, & we are all going to burn. or maybe drown. or both. I bid you godspeed.
My work has screened at video festivals such as Athens Digital Art Festival (Greece, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2014), European Media Arts Festival (Germany, 2017, 2014 + We, The Enemy tour), Antimatter [Media Art] Festival (Canada, 2022, 2017, 2016), Lausanne Underground Film Festival (Switzerland), & the Austin Arthouse Film Festival (USA), among others (see ‘News’ for ‘the list’), & exhibited at galleries such as Ohio State University Mansfield Gallery, Latitude 53, Stride Gallery, & Artspace. I hold an MFA from the University of Western Ontario & a BFA Honours from the University of Alberta, & am currently a permanent faculty instructor at the Yukon School of Visual Arts. I am the founder and producer of Cold Cuts Video Festival, & despite hating winter, currently live & work in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada.
