Curriculum Vitae


Shayna Pollock, (b., Manitoba, Canada) |


Shayna Pollock is a multidisciplinary conceptual artist and Emily Carr University of Art & Design graduate. As a Métis person and as someone living with a multiple chemical sensitivity, the materials and art forms used in her work integrate intimate experiences and views from her life with art. These seep in while she plays with perception, expresses views on societal constructs, explores notions of self and what it means to live in and be part of the world. The materials that she uses in her works are endless and always changing depending on circumstances; photography, light, water, clay, glass, metal, vinyl, paper, fabric, electronics and various other mediums are used to create a visual dialogue. She feels to create art is a way to speak, express, explore, engage, and understand an experience as a whole. Captivated with how extensive expression through photography can be, she is currently looking to advance her career as an artist and photographer. She currently volunteers as a photographer and photo editor for local performing artists.
