series of serigraph prints on paper, miniature sculptures, and animation, 2015
The Process of Plotting began as small images of machines, ropes, posts, pieces, holes, and other oddities printed repetitively onto multiple sheets of paper, forming a modular landscape that is easily rearranged. These images served as the blueprints for the miniature sculptures and animations that followed, bringing these strange visualizations into new forms of existence.
This work was the result of a bursary from Atelier Estampe Imago and was exhibited at Galerie Sans Nom in Moncton, NB from September 18 to October 30, 2015.
As with Manufactory, I find Theriault’s new body of work both magical and absurd, playful and deeply disturbing, as she references the troubling realities of unchecked industry, divorced from human actors and human need - something as alive and well in Atlantic Canada as it is elsewhere in the world. These are cheerfully colourful, fanciful abstractions of ‘Resource Extraction,’ ‘Product Fabrication,’ ‘Material Processing,’ ‘Supply Chains and Transportation.’ - Sophia Bartholomew, Visual Art News Magazine, Spring 2016 issue
