Vessel @ Kamloops Art Gallery

Stephanie Patsula is a recent graduate from the Thompson Rivers University Fine Arts program. Influenced by post-minimalist approaches and process-based art making, Patsula works with found and constructed objects and explores the relationship to the space in which they are made and displayed. For this project, she investigates the architectural space and ideological context of the white-walled gallery for which The Cube is named. Patsula is interested in the resonance of built environments and their history. The white cube is understood to be a neutral space in which objects can speak for themselves. This exhibition was selected as part of the Curator's Choice by Craig Willms and will be displayed in The Cube along with the Ted Smith and Jack Shadbolt exhibitions.
