KAMLOOPS - Please join artists Tangie Genshorek and Cameron MacQuarrie for their opening reception of UTOPIA at the Kamloops Arts Council Main Gallery.
Utopia proposes the development of unique spaces where humans might create a new way of urban life. Utopia brings together digital photographs and models in collages that create new plans for neighbourhoods through a hypothetical perspective other than our own.
Tangie Genshorek and Cameron MacQuarrie have worked together since 2009 in a combined creative effort they call Scaled Space Studio. The idea of scaled space refers to viewing, drawing and modelling at different scales in analog and digital worlds. Tangie and Cameron create 2D visual representations that combine drawing, digital photography, modelling and collage.
Tangie Genshorek is a multimedia artist residing in Kamloops British Columbia after having lived in many places in Canada and abroad. Tangie has been formally trained in fine art at Thompson Rivers University, the University of Victoria, and the Alberta College of Art and Design and showed her work in private settings through the 1990s. Tangie is now creating artwork after completing an undergraduate degree in urban studies at the University of Calgary in 2004 and a master degree in architecture at the University of Toronto in 2008.
Cameron MacQuarrie is a multimedia digital artist residing in Kamloops British Columbia after living and working in Calgary, Vancouver, and Toronto. Cam earned a degree in Visual Communications from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1992 and went on to spend time specializing in web development, iconography, and the creation of analog and digital motion graphics. Music and art have always been a large part of Cams life, and his artistic vision is informed by a career in graphic design.
