Interrogating data and mass media as points of origin, Tuepah’s work considers the conceptual and embodied experience of information and materials in relation to contemporary issues, events, and the precariousness of the human condition.
Relying predominantly on paint, yarn and detritus as sculptural medium, her work operates in 3 dimensional space with networks and ‘data-bytes’ of material standing in for systems, modes of measurement, or visceral realities. Materiality and abstraction shift the viewer's experience between the intellect and embodiment, while the layered use of titles and recognizable objects allow the work to co-exist with a language or provenance that is specific and nameable.
Tuepah received a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2011, where she was awarded the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence. Exhibitions of her work include The Reach Gallery Museum, Vancouver Art Gallery’s Family Fuse, Surrey Art Gallery, Bellevue Washington's Sculpture Biennial, Ontario’s DNA Artspace, and Access Gallery as a finalist for the 2016 CASV Emerging Artist Award.
Tuepah served as VP + Treasurer on the ECU Alumni Board, is a founding member of the curatorial collective AgentC Projects, and a member of CAM, a group working to develop a board-directed contemporary art gallery and arts centre in South Surrey.
