Gloria Mok is a visual artist who explores the realms of science and medicine. Wonderland: Nature Reconfigured is a series of collaged interventions onto historical prints. It depicts alien environments where place and orientation are ambiguous and unfamiliar. These imagined interventions onto historical representations of nature call forth the fantastical elements hidden within the natural world.
Mok has a background in medicine and in visual arts – she is both a physician and an artist. She has participated in residencies at the Banff Centre, Emma Lake, and in France. Her work has been shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions including shows at the Nickle Galleries, the Art Gallery of Alberta, and Esplanade Gallery.
“My interest in art is in the scientific realm. Over the years I have explored diverse topics, various mediums including photo-based works, drawings, and 3-diminensional works. Wonderland: Nature Reconfigured is a folio of collages where birds and plants are reassembled in a baroque fantastical landscape.”
