"In fall 2012, artists Lucien Durey and Katie Kozak moved to the northern Saskatchewan town of Creighton to take up a self-directed residency in the home of Kozak’s Ukrainian-Canadian grandmother, Sophie Ostrowski. During this time, they produced scanned compositions from materials found in Ostrowski’s home, producing works with surprising depth and formal restraint. Thoughtful, emotionally resonant, and quietly funny, the resulting collection of works form a loving portrait of this specific individual. Ostrowski’s story, however, evokes commonly-shared Saskatchewan experiences of rural prairie life and homesteading, the hybridization of second generation Canadian identities, family history, and intergenerational friendship and exchange."—Dunlop Art Gallery
