artworks by Jennifer Wanner

Carbon Copy

Teena Dickerson creates new life forms in her mixed media metal sculptures by merging fossil shapes with the images of living animals including humans. Their shapes and forms are interconnected across time, echoing one another.

In the same spirit, Jennifer Wanner works in hand-cut inkjet paper collages and animation to explore the idea of “second nature”: copies of a pristine “first nature” that often no longer exist.

This exhibition is on display at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) until April 21, 2021.
