Sneak peek at Ace’s work-in-progress for Anishinaabe-bimaadiziwin at Central Art Garage, Ottawa, Ontario (June 2021).
Ace is currently working on new paper regalia works for his upcoming June 2021 exhibition at Central Art Garage (CAG) curated by Danny Hussey and Bridget Thompson. The exhibition will feature new Anishinaabe inspired paper regalia works and a large-scale beaded work that will be mounted to the external wall of CAG and revealed at the time of opening this Spring.
Here is a rare glimpse inside Ace’s home studio, as he works on his new mixed media Jingle Dress. From conceptual drawing; to paper construction; to formation of jingles secured to the work with wire; to intricate electronic component floral decoration on all accessories that include yoke, cuffs, belt, leggings and moccasins, Ace reveals the attention-to-detail accorded to this new work in his signature style.
