Artists Statement: As artists, we often work in series, creating a body of work with a specific end date in mind. But what happens to the pieces that don’t fit into that theme or aren’t completed in time for a particular show? In my case, they lie in piles around the studio, waiting to be finished, seen, appreciated. This exhibit presents some of these works – my orphans – pieces that took longer to shape and whose stories have yet to be experienced.
MEAGHAN HAUGHIAN’s work primarily consists of mixed media drawings on paper, although her studies in printmaking and photography retain a strong influence on her practice. She received her BFA (Printmaking & Photography) in 2004 from Mount Allison University. A member of Blink Artist Collective and Enriched Bread Artists, Meaghan has exhibited in Ottawa and throughout Canada. She has received grants from the City of Ottawa and the Ontario Arts Council. Her work is included in numerous private collections and the following public collections: Beechwood Cemetery (2012), Ottawa Art Gallery (2012), City of Ottawa (2006, 2008), National Art Centre’s French Theatre (2006).
