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

Jennifer Linton is an interdisciplinary visual artist working with stop-motion animation, drawing, installation and printmaking. She is a part-time instructor teaching in the Faculty of Design at OCAD University (Toronto), and in the Visual & Creative Arts program at Sheridan College in Oakville. Linton has exhibited her art internationally, with shows in the U.S., Italy, and across Canada. Recent screenings of her animated films include the Montreal Underground Film Festival, The Female Eye Film Festival (Toronto), and the Video Art & Experimental Film Festival in New York City. Her most recent film is the short paper cutout animation “La Petite Mort” (2013).

The people behind Wegway Television

Special thanks to Vincent Kong and Gillian Williamson. Their expertise made this possible.

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.
