Tide Is Against Us, 2017

Clare Yow

I am a Singapore-born visual artist and photographer with an M.F.A. in Visual Art from the University of British Columbia (2010) and an Honours B.F.A. in Photographic Studies from Ryerson University (2008). Since 2003, I have participated in exhibitions and events across Canada including the Two Rivers Gallery, The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery, orris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, an Brock University. y artistic practice has been foregrounded on the everyday, ready-made, and seemingly unremarkable as subject matter, material and process. Over time, it has come to encompass navigating the landscape where my subjectivities and personal politics—as a Chinese-Canadian, an immigrant, a settler, a woman, and a concerned citizen—all collide. Presently, I am focused on exploring the relationship between the politics of identity and issues of social justice through visual and written means.
