Threading through time

Raneece Buddan 

March 14 to April 25, 2024  


Traditional crafts, stories and practices merge and fracture in Raneece Buddan’s work. A Jamaican visual artist who resides in amiswaciwâskahikan (Edmonton), her practice investigates her identity, history and ancestry through an ever-growing medley of media.

Her pieces are a hybrid of the past and present, the artist and her ancestors, celebrating an ever-expanding complexity. Buddan knows her own story through her practice, discovering the joy of being one formed from many.
