Rocio Graham: When I Think of Home

February 3, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm MST

CKG is pleased to welcome emerging photographer Rocio Graham to the gallery with the premiere exhibition of her When I Think of Home series.
Born in Mexico, Graham emigrated to Canada in 2002, studying art at Emily Carr University and the Alberta College of Art + Design, where she recently obtained a Bachelor of Design in Photography. Her poignant still lives are influenced by her cultural heritage, identity as a woman and mother, and reflections on daily life. Fittingly, her home and garden serve as her studio, where her elaborate compositions begin the moment she selects a seed to nurture. Influenced by classical portraiture and momento mori, Graham’s large-scale photographs are lovingly crafted meditations on life cycles, labour, consumption, and the macroeconomic impacts of home. She admits it’s a labour-intensive process which “allows [her] to explore time and nature as creative allies”.
Opening reception Feb. 3 from 1-4pm, Artist talks at 2pm.
