Our Water, Our World Exhibition on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean - June 1-20, 2019 in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia
What fanciful illusions dance with you through life?
What will you see the next time you look or listen; what will you feel?
Coloured by a succession of individual and shared experiences, the ‘reality’ of this moment is anything but certain. Constantly shifting, our impressions are coloured by the world around us. Like in a dream, we walk through life imagining the missing pieces of the puzzle.
We learn more about the universe every day, and yet there is beauty in the mysteries that lie before us, in the vastness of the unknowable and the possibilities that creates. Like looking at an abstract painting that asks us to respond without having all the answers, life asks us to live with hopefulness, with love and integrity and trust that the outcome will be a life well lived.
Wearable Art is now available!
After much encouragement, I've decided to try something new with my art. So here you have it, some gorgeous wearable art made in Montreal, Canada from a few of my artworks. This clothing is printed with a superior process known as sublimation printing on high quality jersey fabric. It is wrinkle resistant making these items ideal for travelling.
The dress is reversible, black on one side and printed with the image of my painting, "Dynamic Equilibrium" on the other side.
The palazzo pants are super comfortable and classy. Dress them up or wear them casually for a fun and funky look. The sleeveless top is loose and flared and looks great tucked or belted as well.
Available in sizes XS, S, M, L and XL. Please message me at firstname.lastname@example.org for orders. Prices listed below with items.
Summer isn't over yet, but already I am feeling the cooler temperatures set in and the itch to spend more time in the studio, a little less time swimming and kayaking and touring visitors around Nova Scotia. Living on a lake and near the Atlantic Ocean means that I'm just a tiny bit distracted by the opportunities to be a mermaid and play in the water. :-)
But here's the thing: I've got some shows coming up and it's time to focus! "Phantasmagoria" will be my solo show happening in November at 14 Bells Fine Art Gallery in the Hydrostone area of Halifax. It's going to be an exciting show with some surprises. So be sure to look for upcoming news for the opening of that show.
At Gallery 78 in Fredericton, a water themed exhibition is coming in October, just in time to get you in the mood for the beautiful change of seasons in the Maritimes, when everything changes practically from day to day, the sky, the trees and yes, the colour of the water! I'll be sending four new works to the gallery for part of that group exhibition.
New works have also been sent to Crescent Hill Gallery in Mississauga. And don't forget to browse my website for works still available. I'm happy to bundle up a beauty to ship to you wherever you live on this beautiful fragile planet!
