Event Description

This month, our theme is NOW and our guest speaker is local artist and activist, Maurina Joaquin.

In this talk, Maurina explores personal experiences of trauma, brain injury and disability, as well as the layers involved in the healing process.

This presentation of CreativeMornings coincides with Maurina's exhibition, Natural Transformations, which is on display at the Victoria Arts Council's satellite gallery at theDock: Centre for Social Impact. Natural Transformations incorporates various printmaking techniques including Suminagashi, monotype and collograph printing, as well as embossing and collage to create layered compositions.

Maurina was drawn to Suminagashi printmaking as a way to cope with PTSD from a near drowning in 2010 that resulted in brain injury. This ancient Japanese process involves floating ink on the surface of water to create marbleized effects on paper, and using this technique has helped in healing her relationship with water.

About the Speaker:

Maurina Joaquin is an artist based in Sooke, BC whose work focuses on themes of disability and healing through art. After surviving a near-drowning in 2010 that resulted in brain injury as well as trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder, Maurina has utilized art and creativity as a way to heal, and is an advocate for creativity as a complementary method of care for those who experience trauma.

Creating mixed media work using various types of printmaking, as well as embossing, stenciling, collage and mixed media, Maurina’s work explores and communicates themes of disability, including brain injury and trauma.

Maurina has been exhibiting her work at the Sooke Arts Council and the Victoria Arts Council since 2019, and has studied visual arts at the Vancouver Island School of Art since 2013. She has led a variety of printmaking workshops focusing on healing and disability with the Victoria Brain Injury Society, and has had her work published in a variety of Vancouver Island-based publications.
