Artist Statement

I’m intrigued by what is often easily overlooked - consumable objects, endemic flora, geological evidence of glacial passage. I employ sculpture, installation, and social practice to express the intricacies of relationship.

Repetitive action is perennial in my practice, from silk-screening and slip-casting to knotting and mark-making. I rely on the tactile qualities of my chosen materials to guide my process. References to time and attention to detail are through lines. In reckoning with them, I uncover ways that objects, people and environments converge to resonate with unexpected meaning. 


Terri Fidelak is an intermedia artist currently based on Treaty 4 Territory in Regina, Saskatchewan.
