For the residency, Price will be experimenting with print media as an extension of her painting and drawing practice, which is concerned with the perception of time in relation to material practice. Using strategies of repetition, iteration and, accumulation, she will make multiple versions of images that will collectively comprise a single work of indeterminate size.

Price makes copies of original images based on other copies to the extent that there is uncertainty as to which copy is the first, the second, the third, and so on in the chain of versions. The unique original version of the image that starts any particular indefinitely continuing body of work becomes buried or lost beneath its derivative. Each project is interrupted only by a factor that dictates an arbitrary pause—a deadline, an exhibition, a vacation—until she can take it up again. In this way the work develops anachronically (resisting fixed time) and recursively (developing serially and systematically). The collective paintings and drawings are installed as a single work, a hesitation in an ongoing process.

Lynn Price is a visual artist working primarily in painting and drawing. Her practice is concerned with temporality in relation to material practice. Lynn received her MFA from Concordia University and a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Her work has been featured in exhibitions in Canada, including a solo exhibition, How Small a Thought, at the McClure Gallery in Montreal. Lynn is the recipient of a number of awards and scholarships, including the Mary Plumb Blade Award (painting) and the Governor General’s Silver Academic Medal from Emily Carr University, as well as the Joseph Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship (SSHRC) and British Columbia Arts Council Scholarships and the Lillian Vineberg Graduate Award (Painting and Drawing) for her MFA studies at Concordia University. She is the 2018 recipient of the Takao Tanabe Prize for an emerging painter based in British Columbia.
