Enriched Bread Artists

Member's bio:Jenny McMaster

Jenny's work combines painting, fibres and stitch work. Her series Between the Lines and Tight Laced employ the media of handmade paper and encaustics to explore the cultural language and personal traces written on items of clothing.

Jenny has recently begun to experiment with the creation of maps through automatist techniques and social encounters. To this end she hosted an interactive performance at Chinatown Remixed in 2012. The resulting fibre and paper works were exhibited Private Sea and Social Tea Maps. In an effort to further explore collaborative and participatory art practice, she took part in a thematic residency entitled Society is a Workshop at Banff Centre.

In the upcoming year Jenny will be exhibiting her work at Blink Gallery where she has just been accepted as a member. She joined the EBA in 2013 as well.

Jenny has exhibited at Centrepointe Theatre Gallery, City Hall Gallery, the Ottawa School of Art, the OAG, Art Guise and the Centre Town Art Tour in Ottawa. Her art was purchased by the City of Ottawa in 2011. She was a featured artist at the Tree Reading Series in 2010. Her interest in fabric, external encasements and feminist concerns lead to a collaborative performance with Karina Bergmans in the Cake Show at Pukka Gallery. She has also shown her work at the ARTSIDA Auction and Concordia's VAV Gallery in Montreal as well as Toronto Alternative Fashion Week, Gallery 1313, Engine Gallery and AWOL in Toronto.
