Wendy Sawatzky’s imagery marries lo-fi and high-tech, combining vintage and obsolete equipment with digital technology and alternative printing methods.
Her work includes photograms, cyanotypes, cinemagraphs, anaglyphs and emulsion transfers. She experiments with Victorian magic-lantern techniques, lomography and iphoneography.
Much of Wendy’s work layers analog and digital processes: a single image could begin as a photograph on film, for example, then be scanned, digitally desaturated and inverted, laser-printed, cyanotyped, rescanned and digitally toned.
Wendy founded the Bolshevixen Art Kollectiv with filmmaker Danishka Esterhazy. She’s a member of Winnipeg’s Platform Gallery and Martha Street Studio, Fredericton’s Gallery Connexion, and the International Stereoscopic Union. She was a protege of Mentoring Artists for Women's Art's Foundation Mentorship program in 2010. She lives in Winnipeg, Canada.
