Current Residents

Macaulay House Studio Residency

November 2020

Annie Kierans (Dawson City)

Annie Kierans is a visual artist originally from Halifax, NS now based in Dawson City, YT. She is currently working towards strengthening a dialogue between her paintings and film, by playing with figures in pseudo-imagined spaces and dreamscapes.

Jean Paul Langlois (Vancouver)

 Jean Paul is a Metis artist from Vancouver Island, currently painting in East Vancouver. His work is  informed by television and cinema, particularly Westerns, 70s sci-fi and Saturday  morning cartoons.   

Using ultra saturated colours, references to art history and well-worn cinema tropes, he seeks to understand the alienation to his own cultural backgrounds, both Metis and settler.  His work is an examination of his own life , through the renterpertation of family stories using characters and motifs from the pop culture he was weaned on. 

For his KIAC residency, the project is titled “Beloved Wolf: An Examination of White Fang (or the Best Moments of my Life was Throwin’ Sticks for a Dog)”. He is producing three large paintings connecting the novel and its many film adaptations to his relationship with his own dog. 

He would welcome studio visits by appointment.
