This work was submitted for a project involving PAVED Arts and Hamilton Inc. artist-run centres in Canada. Members of each gallery were allowed to submit a banner idea for consideration. Although my work was not chosen, this billboard can be realized elsewhere.
It is a collection of writings directly from my sketchbooks. They were photographed using the Adobe Capture app, which then uploaded them to my laptop as digital files. I rearranged layers of writings, reds, and blacks, to achieve the effect. The bright red lines were digitally traced around certain areas of the mark-making techniques that were combined with the writings. They create abstract cityscapes amongst the darkly-written text.

I had the privilege of collaborating with Luke Baird from ELEVEN03 Apparel for the 2018 Chaos ‘84 runway show in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, at PAVED Arts artist-run centre. The two of use created a sweater, which was inspired by Hannibal Lecter’s mask. It was combined with a piece of folded felt, that referenced a bib; and then, the Blood Bib sweater was born. The final male outfit was a white denim tuxedo that I was given free range to create with. Like a blank canvas, the front of the canvas was an exploration of red marks, which were inspired by my Poland artist residency in 2018. The black splatter was a combination of India Ink and acetone splatters across the jacket and pants, that were then connected with a shaky, continuous line.
Below are pictures from the runway show Chaos ‘84.
A text-based project that was inspired by the jacket collaboration. Using a mini projector, I digitally-drew the text based work into the corner of the room. I played with the light of the projector and how the model could move amongst the text to highlight the jacket itself.
