Enriched Bread Artists

Member's bio: Yvonne Wiegers

Yvonne Wiegers’ current body of paintings and drawings are hand drawn involving thousands of small shapes that assert their presence by their sheer quantity or energetic lines compressed into large tangled masses.  She states that, “Accumulations obsess me. The number of stars in the sky, the number of carbon dioxide molecules in the atmosphere and the number of people on the planet are the impetus for my work.  This work investigates the ideas of presence, accumulation and proliferation.”   Her research centers on themes of population, individuality, swarm behaviour, the obsession of material accumulation, ideas about infinity, her fascination with the discovery of new species, the power of observation and her meditation practice.

Yvonne has exhibited both nationally and internationally including the United States, Sri Lanka and Russia.  She has a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Fine Arts from the University of Guelph and a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Calgary with specializations in Drawing, Painting and Sculpture.  Yvonne currently resides in Ottawa.
