Alexia Bilyk’s work is inspired by city life through architecture and nature found throughout urban spaces. Her artistic practice incorporates the use of silk-screening and paper cutting to create original designs and installations.
The work, Landscape, is a reflection on ideas of process, repetition, and narrative. The individual elements assembled to create the work were first silk- screened then hand-cut by the artist to represent a “repeat pattern in the making.” The resulting installation creates a fictional world that aims to be a playful exploration of graphic display and how singular elements come together to inform a larger perceived depiction and narrative.
Alexia Bilyk is currently an Artist-in-Residence in Textiles at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Ontario. She is a graduate from both OCAD University’s Fibre programme and Sheridan College’s Textile programme. Her work was recently included in Hard Twist 9 at the Gladstone (2014).
