Grainger Gallery Solo Exhibition
June 8 - 25
Just as skipping a stone across the water is a small but peaceful act, my latest body of work aims to capture that same essence of calm and simplicity.
I found myself drawn towards minimalism. I wanted to strip away the excess and allow myself to be guided by my materials and aesthetic. Using a mix of heavy textured linen, hand dyed japanese papers and muslin,
each artwork is a reflection of the journey I took while creating it. Like skipping stones, each piece has its own unique path and energy. From the raw texture of the canvas to the delicate lines of the paint strokes, each element was chosen with the intention of highlighting the beauty that can be found in the simplest of forms.
My hope is that this collection of work will bring a sense of calm and joy to those who view it, as they are reminded that beauty can be found even in the smallest of things, like a flower blooming in a garden.
