'HYBRID' by Tim Moore
OSAC Arts on the Move
February 1 - 23, 2013
The exhibition Hybrid presents the collages, drawings, paintings and sculptures of Saskatchewan artist Tim Moore. Moore’s works explore the notion of personal and collective identities as a means of investigating what it means to be Metis. Without having clear distinctions and definitions of Metis culture to respond to or reflect on, Moore finds that he has creative freedom to explore the hybridity of a Metis identity, seeing it as a negotiation between two cultures. He explains, “It is my belief that we are a people of two distinct cultures with the ability to create our own identities on an individual basis. We wear culture like clothing. And we can change, making us an extremely versatile, adaptable and dynamic people. It is in these works that I have found a way to create new relationships concerning materials and objects from both ends of this cultural spectrum. The symbolic notions of these works are stripped during the hybridization process to make way for new forms to appear."”
