Creative woodworking inspired by the landscapes of the Rocky Mountains.
Artist Reception with cash bar & complimentary nibbles: Thursday, March 28th, 7 pm.
Show continues until April 23rd.
Hinterland Woods is a platform for the sculptural creations of Jocelyn Mudry, an independent Canadian artist. She attended the University of Victoria, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her main focus during school was photography and would build spaces, costumes, and props using different mediums, including wire, textiles and wood to create worlds within her photos. What began as a supplement to her photography has now become the focus of her creative language.
Influenced by form, quality craftsmanship, and nature, she is able to turn the landscapes of Canada and earthen materials into contemporary design. Through the creation of wearable art and sculpture, Jocelyn hopes to create a kinship between art, design, whimsy, wilderness, and the daily experience.
Most of the work in this exhibition is influenced by the landscapes Jocelyn has surrounded herself by, mainly the Rocky Mountains. Within these landscapes and experiences, nature has always been her greatest understanding of the divine and has always enveloped her in overwhelming emotion. Jocelyn’s aim is not to recreate these experiences but for them to become an experience of their own for the viewer.
Each piece is handcrafted with care by Jocelyn at her Fernie, BC studio in the Rocky Mountains.
