Leaning From a Steep Slope is a three-person group show by artists based in Seattle, South Korea, and Glasgow. The exhibition showcases a range of mixed media work influenced by place. Collectively, the works by these three international artists present a visual translation of atmospheric experience and memory through interdisciplinary material exploration.
Natasha Alphonse grew up on a remote reserve in northern Saskatchewan and received her BFA from ACAD in 2012. Her practice includes work that is always interested in ideas of balance, the natural world, and personal connections. She is currently based in Seattle, Washington.
Joe Bérubé holds an MFA from the University of British Columbia (2011). He has exhibited in Canada, the United States, and internationally. Joe's work addresses materiality, presence, and spatial perception through a painting driven multidisciplinary practice. He currently lives and works in South Korea.
Sandy Grant was born in Scotland in 1973. He graduated from Grays School of Art in 1997 and currently lives and works in Glasgow. He has exhibited in a number of group shows and solo exhibitions internationally.
