Beautiful Creatures
Exhibition at Artsplace Canmore. April-May 2022

Supported by Calgary Arts Development with the RISE Emerging Artist Program.

What is a Human? A foot, a head, an eye, a heart... and a lot of emotions.

Join me on an emotional merry-go-round: From loneliness to anger, from fear to joy. All tied together in contemporary paintings, combined with sounds or music, animations, and projection mapping. BEAUTIFUL CREATURES is devoted to the representation of BIG FEELINGS, the exploration of tensions with social norms and the human condition by means of fantasy and surrealism. The focus is on individual perceptions and reactions to living in the world today. 

The Ghost Monkey
Northern Reflections Augmented Reality
Art Walk In Inglewood + East Village 2022


Before the Hose and Hound became a pub it was a fire station. The painting reflects the history of the building with its ghosts, the monkey or the horse who still haunt the building.

Northern Reflections is an augmented reality exhibition featuring this year 16 teams of artists as a mash-up of music, art, and technology. Murals and music combine with an augmented reality (AR) app to create a one-of-a-kind art experience in Calgary, with a self-guided tour through two of the city’s most vibrant communities.

 

People's Choice Awards Winner.

Hose & Hound Team: Painter: Doro Buch; Animator; Alyssa Koski @alyssa_koski_artMusic: Jared Andres with @blvd__noir.

Artist Residencies Summer 21

Mural painting at the Women's Center of Calgary:

Four workshops with girls and women at the end of June, thinking of what the Women’s Centre means to us. I took from this workshops my inspiration for the mural design, trying to represent everyone’s contributions in some way.

 

Over 50 people came during two weeks to help painting the mural.  

"As a result, the garden has been alive with the sounds of women laughing, chatting and creating together – sounds that were so missed over the last year at the Women’s Centre.Women's Centre of Calgary

Bringing paintings to live at the Sparrow Artspace with Jacqueline Huskisson:

During our art month residency  we where working be exploring the potential of animation and projection. Like in a lab we where  sketching and experimenting with slow-motion capture of a “moving painting.” Our goal is to work towards a final projection project that can be used as a guerilla art piece in downtown Calgary.
