GENEVIEVE ROBERTSON is an interdisciplinary artist with a background in environmental studies. Her drawings are often comprised of found organic materials collected on-site, and map a visceral and long-term engagement with specific regions. Through recent research in the Kootenays, the Salish Sea, and the Fraser and Columbia rivers, she has engaged with the complexities that emerge when relating to land and water in a time of large-scale industrial exploitation and climate precarity. Her process-based studio work is rooted in inquisitive conversation, long-term place-based exploration, and being out on the shoreline. Robertson has participated in residencies internationally and exhibited at venues including the Libby Leshgold Gallery at Emily Carr University, the Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery at University of British Columbia, the Pensacola Museum (Florida), Touchstones Museum (Nelson), Or Gallery (Vancouver), the New Gallery (Calgary) and Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff Centre. She holds an MFA from Emily Carr University (2016) and a BFA from NSCAD University (2009).
