Artist Bio: Perfect Uncle

Established two years ago at Pith Gallery and Studios, Perfect Uncle formed around a kinship which centers on the proximity, working techniques and approaches to the interdisciplinary art practices of numerous Calgary based artists including Shawn Mankowske and Palmer Olson. The group regularly meets to discuss and share ideas about artistic production and to collaborate on not only art pieces but on a not dissimilar musical body whose output fits squarely within such a collaborative and critical practice. Perfect Uncle utilizes a general problem solving approach to sculpture, painting and music where the effects of process dictate the most crucial aspects in the creation of artwork.
