Morning Light Dance

Morning Light Dance depicts the passage of time in an interior space, the lack of figures shows the isolation one feels when chronically ill, but the play of the lights and the view out of the window represent disabled joy and beauty found in slowing down and observing small moments.


Artist Bio

Kirsten Hatfield is a queer, chronically ill, disabled artist working and living on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples—Stó:lō, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ/selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. Her multidisciplinary practice is currently centered around her experience with illness, isolation, grief and ableism. She explores these ideas through both representational and abstract imagery in a variety of materials and formats.
