About the Artists
Edward Fu-Chen Juan is an artist based in Vancouver, BC Canada. He was born and grew up in a coastal village in southern Taiwan. In 1993, he and his family immigrated to Toronto, Canada. Edward’s art practice is silkscreen printmaking and papermaking with water-based ink extracted from natural ingredients. Currently Edward exclusively works with indigenous plants with significance in historical and cultural context.
From Edward’s research he is connecting his Taiwanese aboriginal identity with the desire for closer intersection to the natural world. It aligns with his passion to highlight the importance of environmental conservation in Canada and abroad.
Radha Pandey is a papermaker and letterpress printer. She earned her MFA in Book Arts from the University of Iowa Center for the Book where she was a recipient of the Iowa Arts Fellowship. She practices European, Eastern and Indo-Islamic Papermaking techniques and teaches book arts classes in India, Europe and the US.
Her book Anatomia Botanica won the MICA Book Award in 2014, and received an Honorable Mention at the 15th Carl Hertzog Award for Excellence in Book Design. In 2018, her book Deep Time won the Joshua Heller Memorial Award. Her artist books are held in over 80 public collections internationally, including the Library of Congress and Yale University. Currently, Radha is working on an artist book inspired by Mughal floral portraiture from the 17th century, for which all the paper will be hand made in the traditional Indo-Islamic style.
Tiffany Shaw-Collinge is an interdisciplinary artist, curator and architect based in Alberta. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from NSCAD University and a Master of Architecture from SCI-Arc. Oscillating between digital and analogue methodologies, Tiffany’s work gathers notions of craft, memory and atmosphere. Her practice is often guided by communal interventions as a way to engage a lifted understanding of place. Tiffany has produced several notable transitory and permanent public works and is a core member of Ociciwan Contemporary Art Collective. While born in Calgary and raised in Edmonton, Tiffany’s Métis lineage derives from Fort McMurray via Fort McKay and the Red River.
