| Artist | drawer and writer |
A drawer and writer based in British Columbia, Canada, Jim Holyoak’s discipline consists of room-sized drawing installations, book arts and ink-painting. In parallel to his solo practice, Holyoak has orchestrated numerous collaborative drawing projects, sometimes involving hundreds of people drawing together.
| Artist | object-based and photography |
My practice is object based, materially and philosophically rooted; much of this work investigates the ways in which art can generate the sensory experience of consciousness. Some of the work does entirely other things. Understanding that the “expanded field” is blown utterly apart, I make things that stay together, that find their own order in a condition of disorder, and that at the same time refuse that which orders everything.
