Ashley Hemmings is a visual artist and gallery worker from Newfoundland and Labrador. She is currently based in St. John’s, NL where she is working towards completing her MFA at the University of Windsor by distance. Ashley completed her BFA in Visual Art at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2018. Her practice asks questions about the relationship between humans and the natural world, and draws attention to the exponentially bizarre ways that land and public space are regulated but not protected. Using play and humor, Ashley’s practice combines locally rooted craft processes with other media such as video, installation, digital drawing, bioart, and collecting. Ashley has worked at a number of art galleries across Newfoundland including Eastern Edge Gallery, The Grenfell Art Gallery, and The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery. Currently she works as a Research Assistant to Dr. Jennifer Willet and INCUBATOR Art Lab at the University of Windsor.
