Anne, a Welsh/Canadian interdisciplinary artist, is currently in residence in CVAG’s Gather Place for an incubator project and research and production residency that is part of the gallery’s Offsite_Onsite program while she expands her collage project a sense of abandon/but not a lack of discipline.

“The collages I have been making for my project ‘a sense of abandon/but not a lack of discipline’ act as a portal into the artist’s studio. I have asked artists and writers from across the country to share an image of behind the scenes in their studios or work spaces. Into these images I have been collaging with found imagery from magazines and newspapers to create imagined futures, emotional landscapes, distant connections and impossible creatures. The final project will consist of 75 works made over a one year period while we have been kept apart by the pandemic.

Anne’s residency will inform the work that will be part of the upcoming Offsite_Onsite exhibition at CVAG June – September 2021.
