  • Suzie Smith works with printmaking and design that expands into sculpture, installation and moving image. Her work often incorporates the deconstruction and transformation of objects and materials to create new or multiple meanings. Smith creates systems and structures for her process that act as a tool to build, take apart and push against.

  • Alexis Dirks is an image-based artist working in Winnipeg. Her work looks at how imagery found across history books, fashion editorials and local landscapes can be collaged in new arrangements to acquire new contextual and narrative readings when their arrangements are flattened across the photographic plane.
