Louise Dee is an emerging North Shore artist who is currently completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting at Emily Carr University. She also holds a Studio Art Diploma from Capilano University. In this series, Dee has reflected about domesticity, and the activities and relationships associated with growing up in domestic spaces.

She has been thinking particularly about domestic activity and the tasks, rituals and behaviours that are modelled and reinforced in the home over time. Louise says, “Traditionally an area considered the domain of women, the domestic realm can be a site of learning, growth, taming and cultivation.”

 

Adrienne Moore’s semi-abstract paintings are the result of many hours working in her studio with live models. The figures are often hidden or incorporated into the overall design of the painting. She uses dowelling sticks and India ink to capture the pose, then she applies loose ink washes to explore the negative areas.

Moore received a diploma in art education from Stranmillis College in Belfast, Ireland and a Bachelor of Education in art education at the University of British Columbia. Adrienne had a successful teaching career for over thirty-five years. Her work hangs in private and corporate collections in the UK, USA, Australia, Germany, Japan and Canada.
