Integrating the past and the present, Déterré/Unearthed speaks of our environment’s adaptation to evolution and the issues impacting our society.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Candace Lipischak is a multidisciplinary Franco-Métis artist from Manitoba. Having worked in graphic design for over 10 years they branched out even more creatively in 2015 as a jewelry designer and owner of Fat Daug-Hand Carved Antler Jewelry. Drawing on their Métis roots and love of nature, Candace also began creating visual art. By painting and incorporating many mediums such as antler, recycled tin and miscellaneous parts, Lipischak found a way of telling a different story while raising awareness about environmental and social issues.
Past exhibitions include WAG@theForks, Wasagaming Community Arts Gallery, Edge Gallery, Warehouse Artworks and La Maison des artistes visuels francophones. Her work can be seen at TDS Law located in True North Square, Winnipeg.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
I’ve always had an affinity for bygone objects. Walking my property, which dates back to the early 1900’s, I discovered many discarded items along the embankment of the Rat River. Each brought forth the inevitable questions; ‘Who used them? What was their purpose? Why were they cast away and when?’ Although I was disheartened to see all this antiquated debris, I realized that Mother Nature still thrived and together they coexisted. Integrating the past and the present, Déterré/Unearthed speaks of our environment’s adaptation to evolution and the issues impacting our society.
Déterré/Unearthed is presented in partnership with La Maison des artistes visuels francophones. Supported by Canadian Heritage.
