After a decade spent stagnating as a commercial illustrator, Trevor Waurechen reconnected with his personal creative vision by returning to his first love: comics. The author of more than 500 pages of autobiographical comics stories, Trevor has also written several short fictions, focusing on the inherent misunderstanding of human interaction. His current graphic novel project, “There’s Always Another Friday”, is also the source for a series of paintings on exhibit at Kitchener’s Rotunda Gallery this coming July.
Trevor devotes most of his time to installation art, working with light, layers, and textures as a means of expressing comprehension and exploring interpretation. It is Trevor’s belief that meaning is ultimately assigned by viewers, not artists, and that perspective is one of the key factors in determining meaning.
Trevor's latest installation work will be on exhibit at Kitchener City Hall during the True North Festival on June 20th. This outdoor light-based piece utilizes angle, perspective, motion and the elements to present a fluid approach to meaning and interpretation. As the wind moves the work, and as one moves around the work, different images, layers, and connections become apparent.
For Waterloo Moves, Raegan Little shared her images, finding the undercurrent of a quaint, small-town,
just beyond [the Waterloo] city limits of the region through the seasons.
Her shots were were accompanied by violinist Jaedon Daly.
