Margie Kelk's artistic practice reflects contemporary concerns about cultural history and politics. Kelk takes an exploratory and experimental approach as she appropriates and reconstructs visual fragments through diverse artistic media that includes ceramic sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, and film. Her first stop-motion animated film, Substratae, has been featured in over forty film festivals, and she has just released her second film, UnderSee. Kelk has been exhibiting her work in Canada, the United States, and Europe since 2000. Kelk is a graduate of Wellesley College, the Johns Hopkins University (PhD.), and the Toronto School of Art degree program.
