Observation to Imagination
I have a new exhibition at the Hive Emporium Gallery on Gabriola Island, BC March 10- April 3rd. The opening reception will be on Friday March 10, 7-9 pm and I will be giving an artist talk on Saturday March 18 , 1-2 p.m. The show will have more than 10 new works, including oils on canvas and paper, as well as some works from other series, all completed during the five years since I have lived on Gabriola Island.
I am introducing the beginning of a new series of paintings on canvas, entitled Allegories. I have been enjoying painting my memoir series on paper, going back to figurative, narrative work ( not in the show but featured on my website), so decided to create some larger works on canvas with a different theme. I wanted to see if I could work on multi figure canvasses again. There are just four so far. I am experimenting and improvising to see how the series will develop. Please see my section : New Work under painting.
