Bicycling with Pamela, 2010. Ink on Bamboo 15 x 22"
Born in Ajax, Ontario, Kristin Nelson received her BFA in Visual Arts from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2003. She is an inter-media artist inspired by questions of community, gender, politics and place. Kristin looks to challenge stereotypes of community through her artistic practice, valourizing those often made invisible. Her recent work includes a photographic drag king trading card project; a life size knitted hay bale; etchings of Winnipeg parking lots and giant cross stitches of Pamela Anderson. In 2008 Kristin completed a residency at the Banff Centre, Reverse Pedagogy, with artist Paul Butler. She recently worked at the Manitoba Printmakers Association in Winnipeg and served on the board of directors for the Manitoba Craft Council. She has exhibited work at Centre A, Gallery Gachet and The Lowercase Gallery (Vancouver, B.C.), at the Lyndon Center (Austin, Texas), Gallery 803, aceartinc. (Winnipeg, MB) and the Winnipeg Art Gallery. Kristin Nelson won the Canadian Dimension Magazine’s Artist Award on Saturday 13th November 2010, nominated by aceartinc.
