Patchell, Gen Headshot

Genevieve Patchell 

Genevieve Patchell is an emerging artist working primarily with clay. A deep love of art led her to enrol in art school where she studied sculpture, photography, printing and other mediums, with a focus on painting and drawing. Using these skills, she has experimented with many different materials over the years such as metal, wood and found objects, to make art and jewelry. She is inspired by abandoned structures, decay, nature taking it all back, and otherwise unnoticed moments.

Kay, Paul Headshot

Paul Kay

Paul Kay, an associate professor emeritus of environmental studies, has been a keen amateur photographer for about 60 years. From earlier interest in capturing instants quicker than the blink of an eye, he has moved to considering what persists over long durations. His current project explores the juxtaposition of the fleeting and the unchanging in museum and gallery settings. Much of his work is digitally based, and he also employs analogue techniques including pinhole photography.
