Introducing : ROCIO GRAHAM

Reception: Saturday February 3, 1-4 pm | Artist Talk at 2 pm

CKG is pleased to welcome emerging photographer ROCIO GRAHAM to the gallery with the premiere exhibition of her When I Think of Home series.

Born in Mexico, Graham emigrated to Canada in 2002, studying art at Emily Carr University and the Alberta College of Art + Design, where she recently obtained a Bachelor of Design in Photography. Her poignant still lives are influenced by her cultural heritage, identity as a woman and mother, and reflections on daily life. Fittingly, her home and garden serve as her studio—a centre for research and development—where her elaborate compositions begin the moment she selects a seed to nurture. Influenced by classical portraiture and momento mori, Graham’s large-scale photographs are lovingly crafted meditations on life cycles, labour, consumption, and the macroeconomic impacts of home. She admits it’s a labour-intensive process which “allows [her] to explore time and nature as creative allies”.
