What’s Left Unsaid Harcourt House Members Show

Harcourt House Artist Run Centre is hosting its annual members show from June 15th to July 14. What’s Left Unsaid asked artists “to delve a little deeper into their process of artistic communication; to explore subject matter that may not initially feel comfortable or approachable, to try and articulate something that hasn’t yet been revealed but still lingers there, on the periphery”.

Many of the works are for sale. Members shows are a great way to add some original art to your collection, support local artists and artist centres.

I have three pieces in this show. Enjoy!

Keeping my eyes open

In my last post I wrote about taking the time to look around and appreciating the landscape, whether it is picture perfect or not. In my day to day travels I keep my eyes open to my surroundings, and continue to take photographs. Some work out and some not so much. I try not to worry too much about those that do not work out and just keep taking photos. It’s interesting to see if the image I took matches the one in my mind’s eye. I have a lot to learn! That’s ok though, as I am always happiest when I am learning. Today I am sharing two photos from the past week.

In other news, three of my digital drawings were accepted to be a part of Visual Arts Alberta/CARFAC’s Ten Voices 2017 show. One of them is the diptych Overwhelm/Overcome. I am excited and thankful to Visual Arts Alberta/CARFAC for the opportunity!

Solo Show Update: exploring ideas

Chemicals: 140,542                 Me: 0

Some of you know I am preparing for a solo final show for my visual arts certificate. A part of my formal plan involves exploring materials that I may be able to use in spite of my severe sensitivities. Unfortunately, my first attempt did not go so well.

I thought I might be able to create something using fabric and thread, wrapping the fabric with the thread. I chose cotton fabric, which is pretty much all I wear these days so I know I tolerate it, and bought some thread. Two tries later I knew it was a big fail – my face was bright red and my chest was tight. Likely the dye on the thread was the problem. (It’s so fine, I thought, there can’t be enough to cause a reaction. But I guess running it through your fingers for 20 minutes overrides the fine-ness.) I can consider sourcing out a different type of thread, but I did want some colour on it, so we’ll see if I get anywhere with it. I wasn’t sold on how my half finished sculpture was progressing, and I may or may not pursue it.

To console myself, I purchased two new art apps to try and I have been having fun with that. These two drawings were created using ArtRage.
