Teresa Vander-Meer Chassé
“’Rez Car,’ with its satirical wit, provokes imagination amongst viewers and encourages them to see beauty in all objects, including discarded roadside hubcaps. Inspired by the men in my life, all devoted car fanatics, I used hubcaps as my canvas. I grew up around mechanics and restoration hobbyists and quickly grew a love for classic cars myself. For this series I wanted to highlight the importance of restoration and rejuvenation to both the physical as well as spiritual. I feel it is my responsibility to animate the forgotten hubcaps and create these works of art. Tsin’ii choh to my family for constantly inspiring me and to Yukon Art Society for hosting my first solo exhibition.”
