Christian Bernard Singer
For the last 20 years, Canadian artist Christian Bernard Singer has incorporated mosses, pine needles and other organic materials with glass, clay, bronze, found objects, and video into eco-installation-environments, land art works and sculptures. His work turns on notions of consciousness, identity (including Queer identity), place, and time-passing as a way to explore his relationship to the natural world and our present environmental crisis. His works have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout Canada and parts of the United States and published in 20 catalogues and books. Singer is also an independent curator and a sessional sculpture instructor at the Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCAD U). He holds an AOCAD from the Ontario College of Art and Design University and an MFA from The New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.
