2024 Artist in Residence
October 5 - 30th
Hazel Eckert is a multidisciplinary artist and designer from Toronto, ON, based in St. John’s NL. She received a BFA in Printmaking from OCAD University (2008) and a diploma in Graphic Design from the College of the North Atlantic (2017). Her work has been presented in numerous group and solo exhibitions across Canada. Eckert is the creator of Nothing New Projects, an independent risograph print and publishing studio with a focus on producing artist-led projects and contemporary print-based works.
Her art practice draws on her experiences as a graphic designer, printmaker, and most recently an independent publisher. Working across analog and digital technology, she creates works in print, installation, sculpture, and artist books exploring how the printed page and the digital screen inform one another. Through print-based installations, she uses scale, space, and transparency to highlight the material qualities of the image and their relationship to memory, impermanence, and connection.
