Artist Statement: 

 

The bouquet of wildflowers, dried grasses, and picked weeds was assembled gradually over the course of a few idle days. The photograph documents the culmination of the slow arrangement, but also extends the ad hoc composition of the bouquet. Twigs and flowers leave the frame, and press against its edges as the picture’s focus enters and exits the depths of the bouquet. This picture is about a slower kind of looking that compresses the optics of the eye with that of the camera.

 

Biography:

 

Graeme Wahn is an artist living and working on the unceded territories of the Syilx/Okanagan peoples. He holds an MFA from Simon Fraser University (’19), and a BFA From Emily Carr University of Art & Design (’15). His practice stems from ongoing engagements with photographic processes—however now his work looks towards alternative optical formations as a means to shift the ways in which one can see, make, or be, in new images of the world. In mid 2020, he relocated from Vancouver to Lake Country, British Columbia where he is now focusing on organic agriculture and sustainable food production practices. This transition embodies his desire for intentional and sustainable living; ideas that influence his art practice inasmuch as it requires one to slow down and observe the world outside of oneself.
