Kreviazuk’ s mixed media drawings submerge the viewer in a world torn between stability and chaos. She draws the viewer close to the surface through her enthralling application of layered media – only to catapult them into motion. The immersive drawings are based on a complex collection of source materials, documentation and memory. Join the artist and a JNAAG curator for a casual conversation about her process and the inspiration behind the exhibition, Composing Suspense: Laura Kreviazuk.
This talk will take place at the JNAAG on Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 1:00-2:30PM. Contact the gallery at 519-336-8127 ext. 3226 for registration. Spaces are limited. Free, give what you can.
The Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery is located at 147 Lochiel Street, downtown Sarnia.

Laura Kreviazuk received her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Studio Art from the University of Guelph. Following graduation, she relocated to Toronto where she co-founded the VSVSVS studio collective and artist-run centre. During this time, Kreviazuk continued to develop her own drawing language, merging materials and methods of application to develop her own distinctive mark making. Her immersive mixed media drawings are based on a complex collection of source materials, documentation and memory. Upon returning to Sarnia, Kreviazuk maintains a rigorous daily studio practice, where she draws inspiration for her drawings. Kreviazuk has had numerous solo and group exhibitions and has participated in artist residencies throughout Ontario.
