Artist Statement + Biography
My work explores the importance of authorship in connection to my relationship with found text. I transform photographs and handwritten momento’s, through the mimicking of words and phrases. To create a new narrative, I juxtapose my meticulous handwritten works against memories of the past.
Larissa Pendlebury is an artist living and working in Calgary Alberta. Working primarily with painting as a medium, she also employs sound and video in select works. Some of the main ideas that she is drawing from are memories from her past and themes related to her family, specifically her relationship with her father.
