The Graey is an interdisciplinary, Vancouver-based youth artist collective at Satellite Gallery. Together, they travel the in-betweens and grey areas of the city’s diverse community of artists, trying to piece together their own voices. The collective responds to the artistic and cultural pulse of the city through public art projects, art interventions, and individual art explorations. Through the wide-ranging experiences that have shaped each individual member, they come together as a collective not only to make sense of it all but to engage in a conversation with their city, its art, and its public.
My interest in experimental photography is informed by my approach to design and composition. While working primarily in digital photography, I am also intrigued by the processes of light in analogue image production.
I am not in school. I am a workaholic, currently working full time as a post office clerk and as a casino dealer, plus part time as an office cleaner. This series of photographs relate to searching for what I desire in life, but never getting close to that ideal lifestyle. “Self” (the first image set) represents how irresolute I feel with all the possibilities out there, and how trying to find the right one is what prevents me from moving on. “Line” & “Path” (the second and third image sets, respectively) both represent things that have given me small amounts of clarity about my desires.
