Event Description

Static Flux is a collection of paintings from an ongoing body of work in which, using minimal three-dimensional compositions, I explore the tensions between foreground vs. background, flat vs. three‐dimensional and inside vs. outside the frame. In these paintings, I aim to activate an interplay between the dimensionally painted image, the flat wooden substrate and the inherent frame enclosing them. The illusion of depth created by the compositions sits in confrontation with the flatness of the exposed substrate and the frame becomes the boundary between the two. The result sometimes lends itself to compositions that appear to be caught in motion against their frame or that exist on a different plane.
Atefeh Baradaran is avisual artist currently residing in Vancouver on unceded Coast Salish territories. Atefeh has an inclination towards geometric patterns and process-oriented work. She draws inspiration from intentional and accidental compositions present in her surroundings. Her abstract work often present methodically produced designs that are playfully combined with unexpected elements of disruption. Atefeh holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She was nominated for the IDEA Art Award in 2015 and was the recipient of the Salt Spring Painters Guild Award from the 2019 Salt Spring National Art Prize.

the fifty fifty arts collective is comprised of individuals living and working on unceded and occupied First Nations Territories, specifically the lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, as well as the W̱SÁNEĆ, Sc'ianew and T'Souke First Nations.
The programming space itself is situated on Songhees and Esquimalt Territory but engages with individuals and communities across Turtle Island.
As a collective we endeavor to deepen our own understandings of how we are implicated in the history and in the present ongoing project of settler colonialism. As members of the fifty fifty arts collective we continually responsibilize ourselves to the complex kind of space that is the fifty fifty which hosts and facilitates the dissemination of the ideas and work of others.
