ONE HUNDRED CANADIANS
"One hundred Canadians" is a series of one hundred stylized portraits of semi-fictional individuals based on Canadian national population statistics. Using a combination of silkscreen printing, oil and acrylic paints as well as collage material on cotton rag paper, the series as a whole provides a glimpse of Canada’s population as a percentage of fragmented information (age, gender, ethnicity, religion, province of residence, etc.). On a more intuitive level, I have tried to imbue each portrait with an identity, personality and place by writing anecdotes about each person in the area surrounding their portrait. This is to elevate the person portrayed in the portrait from the statistics they are inspired from and hopefully expand on pre-existing methods of conveying complex information.
