I haven’t posted anything in quite some time – been busy with other things.

One of those things is Wegway Television. And even though it seems a bit awkwardly misplaced to promote it here, as I consider this blog to be mostly about finding ways to write about art, I’m going to promote it anyway. This is a whole new thing for me, and it’s fun.

Wegway Television interviews visual artists in a single take. This gives the artists the opportunity to talk about their work in an unstructured way without concerns about context. In Episode 1, Elizabeth Fearon and Steve Armstrong join Jennifer Linton for an in-depth discussion of her work – a combination of drawing, print making, animation and installation. Her current project is Toronto Alice. http://www.jenniferlinton.com

The people behind Wegway Television

Steve Armstrong is a visual artist, writer, and magazine Editor/Publisher formerly based in Toronto, but now living in Belleville Ontario. He is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art (AOCA) and has an undergraduate degree in philosophy from the University of Toronto. He has been exhibiting in Canada and internationally since 1977. His blog, Wegway and the Institute for the Separation of Theory from Practice, is the very thing you are reading right now. His magazine, Wegway Primary Culture is presently in deep hibernation and its somewhat moribund website can be found at wegway.com.

Elizabeth Fearon was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1970. Her formal art education has included a BFA from York University (1995) and a Post Graduate Diploma in Post Production from Humber College (2002). Fearon’s work has been realized through many media over the years, most recently through video, multiples, and installation. Conceptually, Fearon is very interested in the role of the individual as a member of society.

Her work has been shown in many galleries and festivals, including A Space (Toronto, Canada), The Seoul Museum of Art (Seoul, South Korea), MOT Gallery (London, England), Video Pool (Winnipeg, Canada), The Natural Light Window (Toronto, Canada), and 25hrs (Barcelona, Spain).

Fearon has also spoken publicly about her work in a variety of venues, including The Alberta College of Art and Design, BUS Gallery, and Vtape.

Through both professional and personal experiences, Fearon hopes to continue her exploration of the things that make us unique spirits in a complex, confusing world.
