Author Biography

Kate Schneider

Dominic Pinney is a Calgary-Based, Visual Artist who examines the seductive and ominous qualities of the city space through a variety of mediums including, installation, video, sound, sculpture, and text.

Through working with metals, concrete, plastics, video, and light installation, he creates environments and objects that are grounded in both the present and a proposed Dystopian realm. Blending fiction and reality to create an in-between space, his work encourages viewers to examine their own relationship to city spaces and question their feelings towards the urban environment. He holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Windsor (2019), and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Alberta College of Art + Design (2017). Recent exhibitions include: Faster, the Light Fades, in collaboration with Conrad Marion in North Bay ON, Above the Belt, Below the Bush, curated by Minor Hockey Curatorial in North Bay ON, I Dream of Electric Streets in Windsor ON, and Once Removed curated by Adrienne Crossman in Windsor ON.

Kate Schneider is a photo-based artist, educator, and kayak instructor living in Toronto, Ontario. Since 2009, she has exhibited shows, presented at conferences, and published writing throughout Canada and the United States on the subjects of environmental sustainability and photographic discourse. In her works, land is more than a photographic subject – it is dynamic, durable, delicate, and marked by contested histories and desires. From the photographic and cartography trace to structures built or left on a landscape, Kate’s works are multimodal and experiential stories of place that question the mythology of a static environment and ask the viewer to consider the transitory and permanent marks we leave on the land, water, and sky surrounding us. Kate’s works have shown Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art (Toronto), Harbourfront Centre (Toronto), SoHo Photo (New York), and the Great Plains Art Museum (Lincoln, Nebraska). In 2014, Senator Barbara Boxer used Kate’s works as a visual testimony against the Keystone XL pipeline on the floor of the United States Senate. Her works have been published in numerous publications, such as Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward publication and PDN’s Photo Annual.
