Amy Sallenbach & Dominika Koziak
Reception: Wednesday, April 4th | 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Amy Sallenbach is a multidisciplinary artist and pilot who has frequently left the constraints of gravity behind, one way or another. Reflecting on our world and the nature of time through assemblage mobiles, scientific theory utilizing profuse colour, and observational works balanced by gravitational pull, she seeks a panoptic theory clear of language. Her inspiration is found in outer space, movement of air and water currents,
antique technology, trees, flying, and the inner voice. Amy is an Alberta based artist, raised in Lethbridge, and received her BFA in Fibre from ACAD in 2001. She is best known for my playful exploration of astronomy and outer space through kinetic sculpture and installation, as well as acrylic paintings that contemplate the inner environment, and its connection to the conscious via colour and form.
Dominika is a Canadian artist with a Ukrainian-Polish cultural background. Born in
1991 at Edmonton, Alberta, Dominika completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the
University of Alberta in 2013. Dominika then moved to New York City where she
