Fiona Chinkan, Maria’s friend and collaborator came to visit this summer and filmed a studio tour with Maria. This tour shows a lot of different materials Maria works with as well as some new and older work and gives a glimpse into process and storage solutions. Enjoy watching it here!
Fiona and Maria were interviewed this week about their collaborative Shared Energies project on the Canadian Podcast “In Conversation with Stephen Hurley” through VoicEd radio . If you have half an hour take a listen to the conversation on their take on the role of artists in society today, how they came to collaborate and what they have learned about the collaborative process.
