Hamilton Public Library supports local artists, artisans and organizations by providing free exhibition space.

This body of work is an investigation into what constitutes identity; is it fixed or fluid, does a person have one true identity and do interactions with nature impact our identity?

These large-scale prints consist of digitally layered self-portraits that highlight our entanglement with nature. The work consists of layers of drawings, frottage, paintings, prints and self-portraits. The interconnections between nature and humans are highlighted.

The use of self-portraits in the work is serendipitous for someone who has an aversion to being photographed. As a female, the control and ability to represent myself as the subject rather than an object is appealing to me. No matter what the intervention, similar to nature when it is unleashed, control is lost.  The history of photography and its ties to the history of portraiture and juxtaposition with the new genre of selfies are also of interest.

About the library

The first Hamilton Public Library building opened on September 16, 1890 by the Earl and Countess of Aberdeen on the north side of Main Street West. In 1913, a new main library opened. This building was replaced in 1980 by Central Library, at the current location on York Boulevard.

In 2010, Central Library re-opened after approximately 18 months of renovations. Central Library opened with a newly revitalized first floor, which includes a Community Living Room that takes advantage of natural light. The Ontario Library Association honoured Central in 2012 with an Architectural and Design Transformation award.
