|"In Praise of a Scattered Mind"|
will be part of this year's Annual Juried Show
at Propeller Gallery in Toronto.
The Juror was David Kaye of David Kaye Gallery.
He was looking not only for a "masterpiece" but also for mementos that will go with the artwork.
Every artist will have a different memento for their piece.
I think this will be very intriguing.
Opening Night is Thursday May 31, 2018
6:30pm - 9:30pm
Looking forward to seeing you there!
|These five objects belong to the "Accumulated Remnants" series.|
They will be wall-mounted but are easier to photograph of a dark background. Each piece is approximately 9"x6"x6"
The series was triggered by a need to look at the positives of getting older: investigating the knowledge we accumulate over time and store so deeply in our memory it becomes cellular, it becomes instinct.
|... not really! Just having fun!|
Last weekend was Thanksgiving in Canada and
I was cooking up maple syrup and wallnuts for a treat.
This is what that looked like, almost alive!
The patterns are so intriguing and hypnotising...
maybe they will or maybe they have already popped up in my work.
Hope all my Canadian friends had a great Thanksgiving!
Mine was pretty sweet.
|(From the series I am presently working on; another small sculpture 4"x10".)|
Canadian Thanksgiving is just a few days away,
so I decided as a little Thank You to all of you who have been supporting me throughout the year, to open up my studio for the month of November. If you would like to pop by please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to seeing you!
|This week went by too quickly. I have been experimenting with the idea of remnants, still fascinated with memory and how it shapes us, and how we on the other hand shape our memories. This work in progress is still in its very beginning stages and will probably take up most of my time for the next couple of months. So if you don't hear from me... that's why!|

|A snapshot of a new sculpture exploring two very different characters.|
I'm interested in the rhythm of relationships - the ambiguity of connecting and separating - the pulse of a relationship.

|'Art Heals' |
is a show curated by Allan O'Marra and Clare Bolton.
The artists created a piece for the show in which they dealt with a difficult subject matter hoping to work through it and hoping for the viewer to experience the healing properties of art.
March 17 (6 -8pm)is the opening reception. Allan O'Marra will give an art talk and you will have an opportunity to speak with the artists about their work. I feel very honoured to be part of this project.
Just got word from the Ontario Society of Artists that "Falling out of Darkness" the large piece in this picture was juried into the Annual Juried Show at the John B. Aired Gallery in Toronto.
I'm so thrilled to be part of this event! "Falling out of Darkness" is part of my Fragmented Memories series. It is an attempt to capture my experience that working through mental darkness eventually leads to a deeper, brighter understanding.
