ARTISTS IN RESICENCE

Tim Belliveau

Tim Belliveau was born in Montréal and received a BFA in glass from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2005 and an MFA in Fibres and Material Practices from Concordia in 2017. He co-founded Bee Kingdom glass studio in 2005, assisted with the launch of Berlin Glas e.V. in 2012 and occasionally collaborates with sibling and fellow artist, Elisabeth Belliveau. His artwork is influenced by many years working as a technician and teacher, with a focus on the intersection of craft traditions and digital technologies.

Julia Glatfelter

With mixed media and sculptural installation, Julia brings awareness to conditions of humanity. Attention to journalism on topics of human conflict, migration and gender enable her to reiterate truths through inaudible methods. When words falter, she uses art to further awareness of what is true in our world and of those in it. Julia currently lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland. She previously studied Elementary Art Education at Gordon College in Massachusetts and has taught the fundamentals of the visual arts in settings across the East Coast and as far as Colombo, Sri Lanka. In the past year, she self-published a children's literature book about the true story of a radical art education program from Boston. That story inspired her to craft her latest education endeavor: a bilingual aftercare art program in Baltimore City. While at Casa Lu, she anticipates further developing her visual work about migration.

Carmen Schabracq

Carmen Schabracq was born in Amsterdam, where she currently lives and works. In 2012 she received a BA in Fine Arts from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, after a year of painting studies at the Academia de Belle Arti in Rome. In 2015 she completed a MFA in Theatre Costume Design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerpen, with a research and a body of work which she called 'naked masks’. In 2017-2018 she received ‘the new maker fund’ of the Dutch performing arts fund, with which she made two in situ visual performances.

Her work consists of performances, paintings, sculptural installations, photo and video work, in which she uses her selfmade objects, costumes and scenography to create her own world and tell stories to deal with life and death. “In my work I try to relate to human identity. Every human exists out of many faces, all of whom originate from the perception of the other. A mask is an object to represent the multilayered character and is a tool for a ritual or performance, to become ‘the other’. Masks and their rituals have the will to embody ideas and the aesthetic search for the meaning of life through art.

Tyler Witzel

Tyler Witzel was born in British Columbia, Canada in 1985. Raised in a rural, off-the-grid homestead within the interior of the province, these formative years in nature and relative isolation would lead to the development of themes that are present in his work today. Tyler attended the School for Arts and Technology in 2005 in Kelowna, with a focus on film and experimental animation. He has recently returned to Vancouver Island from some years living and working in Berlin, Germany. Currently based out of Victoria, B.C. Tyler is creating work primarily in the mediums of drawing, painting, sculpture and experimental animation.

Lizzy Gabay

Born in New York in 1993, Lizzy Gabay earned her BA in Fine Art from the Roski School of Art at the University of Southern California. She currently lives and works in New York City. Gabay’s paintings focus on the effect memory has on our experience of physical space and personal identity, and the reciprocal influence that identity holds over our experience of space.

 

For Gabay, the act of viewing is a kind of daydreaming. To enter the space of her paintings is also to enter the realm of memory. The confluence of represented time and place with the spatio-temporal context of the viewer creates a dual experience that Gabay investigates further in her material use of mesh cutouts. These screen windows offer a vantage point into other spaces while serving as material interventions of the here and now. This multiplicity of physical orientations parallels the accumulation of remembered times and places within the mind. 

Chris M Rodgers

Chris M Rodgers is a native of Charleston, West Virginia. He earned his BA from West Virginia State University, a post-baccalaureate from Kansas State University, studied at Tainan National University of the Arts in Taiwan, and completed his MFA this past spring from the University of Arkansas.

 

This year he was awarded the Lighton International Exchange Arts Program grant to participate at the c.r.e.t.a. Rome residency and the Kiln God Award to attend a residency at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts. Before starting the residency at Casa Lü Tlalpan he was a fall resident at Ox-Bow School of Art. He has exhibited through the United States, as well as in Taiwan, China, and Italy. 

Margaux Barsac

Margaux Barsac was born in Bordeaux, France. After studying Graphic Design in Bordeaux, she studied in the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris. Her relationship to poetry began when she became aware of its ability to "pass a thread between things of the most heterogeneous aspect" (André Breton), and all the freedom that it includes. She resumes Pierre Reverdy's  games of analogy in her practice, especially while working on her show’s installation, where a thread weaves between the photographs to allow the eye to discover the continuity. She finds inspiration in photographers like Adams, Sudek, Albers or Mulas, it was through their silver prints that her interest was revealed.

Nonetheless it is Raoul Hausmann for whom she has the deepest gratitude, because of the modesty of his subjects, his tones of gray, his work on the structure and the composition of the elements, the body,  the expanses of the landscape. In addition, drawing holds an important place in her practice, where the line and the horizon are very present.
