Courtney Fairweather is a multi-media artist who has studied and shown her work both in the Netherlands and in Canada. She has two primary streams of interest. One is landscape and wildlife photography that results from her extensive travels. The camera lens enables her to foreground and process the surfeit of new information, instead of being overwhelmed by the immensity of the Angkor Wat in Cambodia or the Atacama Desert in northern Chile. Her other stream of interest deals with issues surrounding body image and gender politics. For Contact 2019, she is exhibiting Doll House, part of a body of work in which she examines the socializing roles of dolls and illustrations in children’s books. She holds a BFA in Visual Arts from York University.
