More from the International Women’s Day Art Show. I just loved the wide variety of media used, and the countless ways in which the theme “Eye to Eye “was evoked.
She’s well prepared for all eventualities with those glasses.
….and this large standing piece had raised cut outs, which were painted on the opposite pieces on the other side. (how did I miss taking a picture of the other side???)…inspired by a totem pole……whimsical…and full of hidden details..
and I’m sure the style must have a name…but I don’t know what it is..There was a lot of beautiful photography. These two examples were especially powerful for me.These are photos of various nebula, and in the centre of each is superimposed a photo of a minute organism. The universe in its extremes.
The next is the same woman showing the passage of time and the effects of life. I found it very moving.
The mother, with memories of her precious son as a toddler, is now helpless and in pain as he makes disastrous choices. I will never forget this powerful piece of art.
….do you see the hunter and the hunted?
The exhibition is on until May 4th, at the Orillia Museum of Art and History. This is just a small sampling of the works on display.( I always get so caught up in looking that I keep forgetting to take photos. ) Do come and see it if you are in the area, You won’t be sorry.
Thanks for stopping by.
