Judy Wasyleshko is a multi-media artist, working in primarily in photography. Her artwork is unique and often includes old cars, garbage and human remains of all sorts. Her artwork gives grace to the discarded, forgotten and neglected by recording with photography, evidence of their existence as well as ours. Many of these objects show off our inventiveness, but are not useful or in style anymore. Often these objects are found in B.C.’s backcountry, beside dirt roads, railway tracks, rivers, dumps, scrap yards, ghost towns and farms.
Judy’s currant work focuses on the disappearance of the family farm. Recording their existence in photographs is a race against time. The photographs for this project was taken just before the destruction of most of the buildings and objects. Everything in the photos was dismantled, or pushed into burn piles to erase their existence and make room for progress.
