Alumni Success Stories
Eros and Thanatos, the life drive and the death drive. The impulses to eat, kiss, play, love, and live, or to sleep, surrender, die, and rest. They embody our curious attraction to both creation and destruction. In this show, artists Nomi Chi and Pandora Young turn inwards and meditate upon our own antipodal desires, and the morbidity and splendour of our humanity.
Eros and Thanatos: New Work by Nomi Chi and Pandora Young

Opening Reception, Friday, January 9, 7 - 11pm
'Drive In' is a series that was photographed during a 15,000km North American road trip in 2010. The series explores the dialogue between architecture and its environment from a social perspective; of literal and metaphorical structures and the spaces it can unavoidably create around itself. 'Drive In' will be installed at the Main Street SkyTrain Station until spring/summer 2015.
Krista Jahnke ('09) is an award winning photographer and multi-disciplinary designer. She weaves her interests in photography and architecture to explore the architectural landscape -- how we populate, circulate through and understand it. Along with her BFA, Photography, from Emily Carr, Jahnke holds a Bachelor of Architectural Studies from Carleton University.
This exhibition presents a selection of work by Kim Kennedy Austin ('01) produced over the past two decades. The aim has been to highlight the broad aesthetic, intellectual and cultural territory that Austin weaves together into a unique and labour intensive practice. Austin looks at structural systems and emotive aesthetics in the ubiquitous sea of printed matter that is trying to sell us products, religion and lifestyle.
The issue includes two articles she penned, From the Studio and Eco Fashion: More than just a trend. This issue is available at select Chapters locations, specialty magazine stores and online.

POLYPHONICS refers to the harmony of two or more textures in a melodious composition. This exhibit is to explore harmony between colours or chords. Unless working with light, artists work in a subtractive colour model to achieve these distinct ideas. Explorations are of colour harmonies such as cool, warm, complementary, analogous, monochromatic, or triadic, to create a whole concept. Works presented are largely involving multimedia imagery whether mimicking, projecting, or displaying.
This exhibition will show projects of emerging local artists in a variety of formats including media, installation, and painting.
