DEEP BAY 2011
Doug Melnyk is a Winnipeg based artist who works in drawing, collage, and video. He is the author of three books: Naked Croquet, Doctor Meist, and Fruits. His work is included in the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
During his residency, Doug plans to make a series of life drawings on the culture of Wasagaming, including residents, visitors, and the location itself. The drawings will be made using pencil and pen, and will be similar in style to an animated video project he is currently working on in collaboration with artist and photographer Larry Glawson.
