CAAF Virtual Residency, April – May 2020
Despite the challenges we are all facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CAAF has made the difficult decision to move forward with our studio residencies – although in a different format. Our newest resident, Fiona Duffy, will be undertaking her residency from the safety of her own home and via CAAF’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.
We are very excited to welcome Fiona to CAAF. Drawing on her own experiences with trauma and illness, Fiona Duffy’s self portraits investigate the dysphoria that accompanies the loss of self to one’s own limitations. The large scale, semi-transparent oil paintings are layered, creating a three dimensional effect and will transform the space with an installation of works confronting the body’s fallibility.
We acknowledge the generous support of the Province of Alberta through Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and of Calgary Arts Development.
