Artist's Statement & Bio:

in·ter·lop·er noun. a person who becomes involved in a place or situation where they are not wanted or are considered not to belong.

There is comfort in routine. There is security in the ritual of repeating an action so many times that you don’t remember why you started.

in·ter·lop·er questions a routine of blending in. In the process of simultaneously concealing and revealing, I investigate the experience of feeling alienated in my own country. By painting, I perform a new ritual of reclamation; I mend the severed ties to my cultural history, despite the cost of comfort.

Selina Martineau, born in Canmore, Alberta, creates paintings, installations, garments and performances that draw on popular culture and the history of marginalized communities to form a contemporary perspective of intersectional identity. Contrasting real and imaginary, humour and seriousness, Martineau’s constructed imagery examines relationships with familiar imagery and how identity is informed by society’s assumptions about race and gender.
