Torrie Groening is a Vancouver-based artist working with photography, drawing, painting, and printmaking. Making use of new and traditional technologies, Groening creates installations and photographs that reflect on a personal investment in the peripheral material of the artist’s studio. Culling from her own collections she constructs elaborate still life scenes representative of a multi-linear and often auto-fictive narrative. Groening studied printmaking at Emily Carr College of Art + Design, Vancouver, and is an alumna of the Banff Centre Visual Arts department. She has held teaching positions at University of Victoria; Emily Carr University; Open Studio, Toronto; and University of Guelph, Ontario.
