Shirley Wiebe is a self-taught, interdisciplinary artist living in Vancouver, BC, with a keen interest in site-specific work that focuses on the relationship of physical geography and the built environment.
She has participated in a number of international art residencies, using the materials she discovers there as an opportunity to initiate projects and new bodies of work. Her research develops through investigations of place, history, and materials in her two-dimensional and sculptural work. Shirley has also collaborated with a number of communities and organizations to create projects that engage people in thoughtful orchestration. Participants are encouraged to contribute to both content and actualization of works, enjoying a sense of ownership along with the outcome.
Her work with hcma is a special project to create a new mural in each of our offices that reflects our body of work, people, and processes.
