Marie’s practice is often driven by her desire to overcome shame through as many facets as possible. Whether she is repurposing discarded industrial materials that denote the artist’s shame, or advertising her Shame Hotline, Marie hopes to communicate a more effective truth about interiority through sentiment and narrative. Her work employs melancholic phrases that allow viewers to create their own personal attachment to the pieces. By tapping into the universal nature of sentimentality, loss and self-deprecation, the work shifts away from evaluating art in terms of its capacity to reflect predefined conditions, and questions what art itself tells us through lived experience.

Marie Winters is a graduate from the University of Alberta’ Bachelor of Fine Arts program and recently completed a 6 months residency at SNAP (Society of Northern Alberta Print-Artists). She has exhibited her work Internationally at Art Bureau in Kielce, Poland and throughout Canada. Marie is also a founding member of the Tennis Club, an artist collective based in Edmonton, Alberta. Her work was published in the medical health journal, Health Science Inquiry (Volume 5, Issue 1, 2014, page 15), the University of Alberta Alumni Magazine, New Trail (Winter 2015) and Canadian Art, Gang Up: 16 Great Canadian Art Collaborations (Summer 2016).

Opening Reception: Friday, February 3, 7-9 pm.
