Studio 2A: Karalyn Reuben
Karalyn Reuben is an urban mixed Oji-Cree German-British artist, from London Ontario. Through her interdisciplinary work she explores different possibilities of explanations of life and different ways of being human. She is drawn to the responsibility to share how she thinks and feels in hope in connecting with others in her search of herself. It is a mutual and grounding understanding she seeks.
Reuben is recovering her Oji-Cree identity through learning process and knowledge, embedded in Indigenous art and material culture and history. In furthering her knowledge base in her current studies, and in receiving teachings from her father she has come to understand concepts of Anishinaabe traditional knowledge.
She has an Interdisciplinary BFA where she specialized in printmaking from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in Halifax Nova Scotia, in 2013. Just last year she finished her second BFA in Indigenous Visual Culture at Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto Ontario.
