Toronto based artist Elaine Stewart uses a variety of materials in her work from fabric to wood to paint. She has been exploring the subject of the wheel chair and its relationship with the body.
I have been exploring the body/wheelchair connection for much of my art practise. It has been an expansive project and I am hoping to use the Luminous Bodies residency to build an opening to a visual record (video) of the body in residence – in the wheelchair. The social construct that is imposed and given value and me, the labelled disabled.
