About the Artists
Sheilah (Wilson) ReStack is an artist born in Caribou River, Nova Scotia and currently living in Columbus, Ohio with her wife and children. ReStack’s work is a feminist investigation into photographic images as one of the possible materials for imagining desire, motherhood and queer family into the world. ReStack is currently Chair and Associate Professor Art at Denison University.
Osterloh cites her experiences as a multiracial Filipino American woman in Ohio as a set of formative experiences that led her to photography, larger questions of perception, and how a viewer perceives difference and sameness. As a multi-disciplinary artist Gina uses photography, video, performance, and sculpture in ways that interrogate the boundaries of a body and preconceived notions of identity. Gina Osterloh is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art at Ohio State University.
