Visual artist Meryl McMaster will discuss her artistic practice as well as the works within her traveling solo exhibition “Confluence” first shown by Heather Anderson in 2016 at the Carleton University Art Gallery. The exhibition brings together photographic works from three bodies of work titled Ancestral (2008-10), In-Between Worlds (2010-15) and Wanderings (2015).
Meryl McMaster is an Ottawa-based artist and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Ontario College of Art and Design University. Through her work McMaster explores the evolving self in distinct ways through portraiture and self-portraiture, incorporating projected light, sculpture and costume to question how we construct the complicated sense of who we are.
McMaster is the recipient of the REVEAL Indigenous Art Award, Charles Pachter Prize for Emerging Artists, the Canon Canada Prize, the Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship, the OCAD U Medal and was long listed for the 2016 Sobey Art Award.
