Aïda Šulcs

Šulcs is a late-career artist in Kingston, Canada, working across drawing, painting, photography, performance, movement, writing and phone video. Trained in fine art at Queen’s University, Kingston, and in graphic design at Selkirk College, B.C., she has worked in illustration, art education and administration, building her practice as a form of catharsis and inquiry.

As a white settler, child of a war family who emigrated as refugees from Latvia to Canada in the late 1950’s, recurring points of interest in her work include how humans treat one another, our relationship with the land, injustices of war culture - displacement, poverty and mental illness.

“SIDEWAYS is an experience of community in research and discovery, both in working methods and in the understanding of our selves in relation to history and the present. I can feel change.”
