Maya Beaudry: Ideas for Patterns for Fabric for Furniture

January 19-February 8, 2015
Bob Prittie Library

Maya Beaudry’s current series of drawings is explorative and experimental, playing with colour, form, gesture and repetition to create pattern. Many of these patterns came from her sketches of designs for furniture fabric. With past work that has investigated the notion of the “dream home” in the context of the current real estate market, Beaudry’s current domestic pattern-making can be seen to extend into the playful terrain of the artist’s fun-house, where custom built art pieces functionally decorate the space.

Maya Beaudry is a Vancouver-based artist who holds a BFA in sculpture from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. In 2013 she founded Sunset Terrace, a shared studio and exhibition space in East Vancouver. Her work with the space is in constant dialogue with her studio practice, both of which employ the affective qualities of disparate materials to explore the psychological implications of interior spaces. She is the recipient of the Royal Canadian Academy of Art CD Howe Scholarship, and has shown her work in Vancouver, Montreal and Berlin.

“Furniture” works adorned with her designs are on view at the Or Gallery, Vancouver for the exhibition Beginning the Shape, which runs until January 31, 2015. mayabeaudry.tumblr.com.
