Vancouver-based art student Janice Wu is capturing significant attention with her images of everyday items most of us wouldn’t look at twice.
Wu – a student at Emily Carr University – says she explores “how seemingly worthless objects have potential for whimsy and how the ‘inanimate’, mundane can reveal poetic and narrative possibilities.”
The pencil & gouache works reflect her interest in material culture and the poetic possibilities of the everyday.
