Artists by Artists: Marsha Kennedy and Carole Epp

the politics of innocent dreams
April 15 to June 19, 2011

Carole Epp creates provocative ceramic sculptures that reference kitsch figurines, lowbrow art and consumer culture. These figurative tableaux explore human experience — death and love, hope and failure, family and social pressures — and seek to stimulate conversation, thought and action.

Epp lives and works in Saskatoon. She has exhibited her work locally, nationally and internationally and is editor of the popular ceramic arts blog, Musing About Mud. Her mentor, Marsha Kennedy, is an artist and educator based in Regina. Kennedy teaches painting and drawing at the University of Regina while maintaining an active studio practice.
