OCADU Career Launcher recipient for the Archive & Collections position
💥 We are excited to announce that the OCADU Career Launcher recipient for the Archive & Collections position is Erica Jochim (she/her)! She will join our team at an exciting time as we move forward with a project to create a formalized collection from an archive of donated prints created at Open Studio in its past and current locations over 50 years. We are looking forward to working with Erica!
🗣 Erica Jochim is a Mississauga-based artist with a BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCAD U. As an artist of mixed Caribbean and European descent, her work expresses in-between spaces and multifaceted viewpoints. Her paintings combine historical, contemporary, and personal influences. Inspired by the dramatic lighting and colour palette of Renaissance and Baroque paintings, she combines historical and contemporary compositions to comment on intersectional issues. She seeks to highlight the importance of looking at the world through a critical lens.
The Career Launcher recruited placement is made possible by a partnership with OCAD University’s RBC Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers and is generously funded by Scotiabank.
