Denise St Marie and Timothy Walker

MFA | Fine Arts

Denise St Marie completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Victoria in BC, focusing on printmaking, multiples, and site-specific sculpture. Influenced by her previous 2 years of studies in Psychology, she used a multidisciplinary approach to her art by adding interventions to the streets of Victoria from 2000-03. As her practice grew she began collaborating with Timothy Walker in 2010, both nationally and internationally. Currently her work investigates social structures, levels of communication, contextual use of messaging, notions of micro/macro and recursive absurdity.  In 2016 she was awarded a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) grant in conjunction with her MFA thesis research.

Timothy Walker is a collaborative artist who works closely with fellow artist and graduate student Denise St Marie. Together their practice consists largely of text-based work focused on the human condition. They often explore themes relating to perception, value and social relations, and how these can become shaped/formed by various belief structures. Walker graduated in 2012 with a BA specializing in Philosophy from the University of Toronto. He has recently exhibited work at the Art Gallery of Windsor, the Art Gallery of Mississauga and Nuit Blanche Toronto.
