Lorraine Weideman




Vancouver-based artist Lorraine Weideman has been exhibiting her paintings and photography since the late 1980s. She graduated from the graphic design program at Grant MacEwen College (Edmonton) in 1982 and the fine arts program at Emily Carr College of Art & Design (Vancouver) in 1987.

Her photographic work includes the ‘Joes I Know’ series of 30 honorific photographic portraits of G.I. Joe dolls from a pristine collection accumulated in the sixties. Using the traditional devices of commemorative portraits, photographed the dolls as poignant individuals.

Her paintings portray dynamic female ‘physical culture’ figures. 'Physical culture' images have been the root of her work for many years. The appeal of their exquisite sense of control, coupled with their isolated and removed presence are also influenced by a combination of family history, a passion for collecting, and a desire to create new life from old disciplines.

Her current paintings are enhanced using traditional embroidery techniques that address notions of established women's crafts and the construction of female identity.
