Join in this month’s Artist Salon Webinar to learn more about the 2021 Branscombe House Artist in Residence, Rachel Rozanski.
As an artist who has worked on various artist residencies to explore themes of the changing Northern landscape, Rachel will share her residency experiences, including details on her own art practice and how she found opportunities that provide time, space, and support for an artist to develop their work. She will also discuss life after art school – from deciding whether grad school is right for you, to how to find opportunities that align with your art practice, and tips for finding balance between administrative time and creative time.
Rachel Rozanski is a Canadian artist whose interdisciplinary works explore biological, geological and material transformations appearing as we enter the Anthropocene. She studied Visual Arts at Emily Carr, Capilano, and Langara Universities, and received an MFA from Ryerson University in Documentary Media. She has exhibited across Canada and internationally, showing interdisciplinary works that explore scientific concepts focusing on environmental timelines. Through residency projects in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Iceland, she has collaborated with researchers and been inspired by the study of land change, pollutants and adaptations and extinctions.
