Alexine McLeod’s interdisciplinary practice harmonizes the paradoxes between embodied perception, spirituality and lens-based technologies. Since completing her BFA at Emily Carr University of Art and Design (2016) and MFA at University of Guelph (2020) she has expanded her compositional play with found materials and projected light, into vibrantly immersive collages and light boxes that shift, distort and engage with the optical tensions between colour, space and surface. During her time at ECUAD, she received the Renée Van Halm + Pietro Widmer Graduation Award for Visual Arts as well as a scholarship from the Vancouver Art Guild. Since then, she was selected as the inaugural artist of the RBC emerging artist series for the Remai Modern opening, a shortlisted candidate for the CASV emerging artist prize, as well as receiving multiple research and travel based scholarships at the University of Guelph in Ontario. McLeod currently works at her home studio in Vancouver, BC.
