June 30 - August 15, 2012
Halls Harbour, a quaint fishing village and tourist destination comes alive in the summer months in Nova Scotia. This is the home of Copper Fox Gallery where Monika Wright will be displaying her vibrant mixed media art along with Fabienne Leydecker, owner of the gallery, in a show they’ve called “Geographically Incorrect”.
The opening reception for the show will take place on Saturday, June 30th from 1 to 4 pm at 4092 Hwy 359 in Halls Harbour.
Wright’s mixed media paintings are sumptuous and vibrant, with an organic composition that evolves as she creates the work. There is a clear sense of spontaneity in each piece. You will get caught up in the exploration of the work. Your eyes will travel. They will search for the recognizable, they will challenge you to keep coming back to look again.
Wright says that creating art is a necessity for her. “Art feeds my soul. Creating matters in our world, tattered and torn apart by disparate factions of all kinds: economic, religious, territorial. These are all man made boundaries and dogmas. At the end of the day, we are all part of this puzzle together”.
With this body of work, Wright draws attention to the manufactured boundaries which tear us apart. She rearranges them in a cohesive way that draws the viewer into the realm of beauty and gratitude for what we share here on earth. In a world obsessed with darkness, she introduces light, hope and joy. This series, “Geographically Incorrect” shows the pieces of the land we call home, reassembled, reconfigured in ways that tell us, we are all part of one world. What we choose to see and believe will determine how we live, not just where we live.”
