About the Artists

Mallory Donen: I Come From a Long Line of Machines
I Come From a Long Line of Machines
investigates the repetitive processes of embroidery, finger knitting, and digital-image making using Photoshop, and how they are similar in their use of mechanical systems. Donen embraces systematic processes in order to create art that is similar to that of a programmed machine. She wants to show how machines and humans are alike.

Mallory Donen is an interdisciplinary artist from White Rock, BC. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of the Fraser Valley, where she specialized in photography, painting/drawing, and print media. Currently, she is completing her MFA at the University of Manitoba. Donen is the 2016/17 recipient of the Marvin and Irma Penn Scholarship of Fine Arts.

Bonnie Marin: Things You Can’t Outrun

The artworks in Bonnie Marin’s thesis exhibition deal with pain and loss as it relates to death. Each work represents a fragmented narrative that invites the viewer to translate his or her own personal stories through her imagery. Her work is created in the genre of Surrealism and built through the use of found objects combined with wood, wax, and paint.

Bonnie Marin received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Manitoba. Throughout her career she has exhibited her work nationally including Winnipeg, Brandon, Toronto, Calgary and London, and internationally including, New York, Chicago, Miami, Paris, Munich, Dundee, Tasmania, and Brisbane. Her work is in such collections as the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the National Art Bank, Plug In ICA, and The Glenbow Museum. Her artwork has been featured on the cover of both Swerve and Herizons magazines. She has received both Winnipeg Arts Council Grants and Manitoba Arts Council Grants.

Pancho Puelles: Seeing Between the Lines & Art of Survival

Pancho’s thesis exhibition work consists of two large works of art: a multi-media sculpture and an installation, both emphasizing social political statements. His work expresses and reflects a wide range of personal and artistic influences. Through thought-provoking multi-media installations, he encourages dialogue regarding social change.
Pancho works with a variety of media to convey his artistic vision, including found objects, music, photography, ceramics, painting and sculpture.

Originally from Chile, Pancho came to Canada in 1977. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours degree from the University of Manitoba in 2013.
