Around the Bend

 

Around the Bend, an exhibition of new paintings drawings, monoprints and Japanese style woodcuts was shown at Gallery San Chun in Calgary from March 16th to April 4, 2004.

The new paintings, drawings, monotypes and Japanese style woodcuts, in this exhibition had been completed since my graduation in 2002 from the Master of Fine Arts (Drawing) program, at the University of Calgary.

These works evolved through the exploration of the vast spectrum 'in between' intellect and intuition. The interplay of micro and macrocosmic elements evokes a poetic visual image, a type of inner landscape, informed by the natural world around, as well as within me. The title, Around the Bend, a temporary flight into reality is a type of Zen Koan. The visual metaphor of a full circle in the painting entitled "Around the Bend" echoes the underlying unity of life.
