WAAP is pleased to present Puff, a new series of textile works by Maya Beaudry. Using ink, water, cotton, and upholstery techniques, these compositions are painted, sewn and “puffed” to create a surface that fluctuates between flat imagery and 3 dimensional space. The pieces in this series take textile as one of their subjects, noticing how it functions as a membrane between people and architecture. Figures are depicted as pillowy motifs; pliable bodies tangled, bound and confined to rectangular worlds.
This exhibition expands upon the artist’s previous work, which deals with ideas around interior space, memory, growth and loss.
MAYA BEAUDRY is an artist from Vancouver. She received a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design and an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. Recent exhibitions include “Everything Leaks” at the Polygon Gallery and “The Pergola” at Contemporary Calgary.
