Artists In Residence
SNAP Artists in Residence 2013/2014
Natif de la belle ville d’Edmonton, Patrick Arès-Pilon aime se promener dans les rues en contemplant la beauté innée du bruit, des tonalités et du mouvement entre les espaces présent. En création, Patrick s’intéresse à la préservation, à la désintégration et à la projection de la lumière et de la noirceur tout en explorant une esthétique synesthétique.
Ellen Prosko is a recent graduate from the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at the University of Alberta specializing in printmaking. Her work is inspired by a combination of home and memory, both past and present, and the attribution of specific memories to corresponding physical objects. Ellen is driven to continue exploring these relationships by using a combination of book binding and printmaking, her preferred methods including copper plate etching and silkscreen. She is greatly looking forward to her residency at SNAP, and has plans to pursue a Master’s degree in Book Arts within the next couple of years.
Brittney Roy is a visual artist that works various mediums including printmaking, digital photography, video and sound. Her current practice revolves around fragmentation of “normal” personal experiences. She is fascinated with the strange in the familiar.
Born and raised in northern Alberta just outside the small town of High Prairie she lived in the country for a big part of her childhood. In the year 2000 her and her family picked up and moved to Edmonton, Alberta where she currently resides. This shift in surroundings has become a prominent tool in her exploration of personal boundaries.
In the Spring of 2012 Roy completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Alberta with a major in Printmaking and Drawing. Currently she works as Programming Manager at Harcourt House Artist Run Centre. Looking to expand her individual art practice in Edmonton she continues to develop ideas through her own experiences, the observation of others and working in collaboration with other artists and disciplines.
