Bio

Audie Murray is a multi-disciplinary Métis artist from Saskatchewan currently learning and creating on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples. She has completed a visual arts diploma at Camosun College in 2016 and her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Regina in 2017. She has studied traditional tattoo practices with the Earth Line Tattoo Collective in the summer of 2017 and continues to work with hand poke and skin stitching methods. In 2018 she was the recipient of the William and Meredith Saunderson Prize through the Hnatyshyn foundation. Audie has shown her works at various events and spaces in Canada including Open Space, Victoria(B.C.); the Mackenzie Art Gallery, Regina (SK); the Alberta Art Gallery, Edmonton; the Clay and Glass Gallery, Waterloo (Ont); Hamilton Artist Inc (Ont); and the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Toronto (Ont). 

To create is to learn, process, and go about embodying a presence in the world. For Murray creating work is a way of understanding the land and her surroundings. It is a way to share these concepts with others. Creating is a way to foster consciousness under her own epistemology. She is an artist because she learns best from a way of knowing that is separate from the institutional constructs that are set in place. Themes of identity through culture and connection, both internally and externally, are present in her art practice. Working with themes of contemporary Indigenous culture, and ideas of connectivity and duality, she believes that the concept and energy of her artworks informs their materiality and form.
