ANNOUNCING
AUDIE MURRAY
AND JASON BAERG TO OUR ARTIST ROSTER

AUDIE MURRAY, T.P., 2018, Toilet paper and seed beads
Audie Murray is a multi-disciplinary Métis artist from Saskatchewan currently based in Vancouver. Working with themes of contemporary Indigenous culture, and ideas of duality and connectivity, Murray draws on time honoured techniques and contemporary concepts to inform her material choices. She often uses found objects from daily life in her work. She then modifies them with special materials and techniques as a way to reclaim or work through the cultural content of the object. “I view the beads as having their own energy and personality and intervening on the object” she states. For Murray, stitching porcupine quills and glass beads over surfaces is a way of understanding the land and her surroundings. Her work addresses challenging problems such as cultural appropriation and substance abuse but does so through a practice of care and patience.

Murray completed a Diploma in Visual Arts at Camosun College in 2016, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Regina in 2017. In 2018 she attended the Plug In ICA: Bush Gallery Summer Institute in Winnipeg. In the summer of2017 she studied traditional tattoo practices with the Earth Line Tattoo Collective and continues to work with hand poke and skin stitching methods. Her BFA graduating work, k Pair of Socks was selected as the Saskatchewan winner of the 2017 BMO 1st Art! Prize, and in 2018 she was the recipient of the William and Meredith Saunderson Prize through the Hnatyshyn Foundation.

Murray’s work was featured in Li Salay, a major survey of Métis art at the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton (2018) curated by Amy Malbeuf and Jessie Ray Short. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions at Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Open Space and thefifty fifty arts collective, Victoria; Gam Gallery, Vancouver; the Mackenzie Art Gallery, Regina; the Clay and Glass Gallery, Waterloo; Hamilton Artist Inc; and the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Toronto.
