The Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery is pleased to present object approaching short blue waves, an exhibition of work by the 2015 graduates of the University of British Columbia’s two-year Master of Fine Arts program: Eric Angus, Jamey Braden, Anyse Ducharme, Jessica Gnyp, and Michelle Weinstein. This program is limited each year to a small group of four to six artists, which over the two years fosters different sensibilities developed within an intimate and dialogic working environment. The artists in this year’s exhibition share an interest in aspects of materiality and the relationships between two and three dimensional work.

Born and raised in the Elk Mountains of Colorado, Eric Angus holds a BFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder, with a focus on integrated art (sound, sculpture, installation). He has shown work and presented electroacoustic performances in Mexico, the United States and Canada. His work explores natural and urban landscapes through installation, soundscape composition and audiovisual performance.

Jamey Braden holds a BA (mixed media art) from Western Washington University. Her work, which often combines drawing and sculpture, text and textiles, with performance, has been exhibited at Satellite Gallery (Vancouver), Hedreen Gallery (Seattle) and at Emerson Space Case (Portland). Her practice explores a tension between the desire to help objects overcome their material bounds, and a desire to allow the overlooked to become visible, to be accepted as it is.

In her work, Anyse Ducharme is interested in the computer, the Internet and the circulation of digital imagery. Originally from Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, Ducharme holds a BFA (photography and media art) from the University of Ottawa and a diploma in 3D animation from la Cité Collégiale. She has exhibited both in group and solo exhibitions, including Arti/fiction Realities at la Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario (Sudbury), Digital Alterities at InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre (Toronto), and as part of the Flash Forward festival for emergent photography (Boston). She is a recipient of a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Grant.

Jessica Gnyp holds a BA (anthropology) from the University of Victoria and a BFA (photography) from Emily Carr University of Art + Design; her critical, interdisciplinary approach to art making has continued to be informed by a movement between these two fields. Her work has recently been exhibited at the Satellite Gallery (Vancouver) and the UBC AHVA Gallery. She is a recipient of a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Scholarship, the BC Arts Council Scholarship and the University of British Columbia’s Arts Graduate Student Research Award.

Born in Toronto and raised in Connecticut, Michelle Weinstein earned her BFA from Maine College of Art. She began exhibiting her work upon graduation and has shown nationally and internationally. Solo exhibitions include Mars Pamphleteer (2014, Gam Gallery, Vancouver), Shine, Perishing Republic (2010, Brooklyn) and Orogenesis (2007, Los Angeles); her work was included in the Event, a non-profit contemporary art fair in Birmingham, England, and is included in the flat files of The Drawing Centre, White Columns, and Pierogi 2000. Weinstein was awarded a Social Science and Humanities Research Award (SSHRC) in 2014.

The exhibition is presented with support from the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory at the University of British Columbia.
