SHIFT : exploring layers of perception

SHIFT : exploring layers of perspective
July 11- August 1
ArtCraft Gallery, 114 Rainbow Road Salt Spring Island

A joint exhibition of work by Barbra Edwards, visual artist, and Fiona
Duthie, fibre artist, at Salt Spring Island’s ArtCraft Gallery.

Fiona’s work in this exhibition features new sculptural felt garments
that use geological surfaces created through fabric manipulation,
stratified textiles and mapping imagery to explore biography. Barbra’s
current work explores how form speaks to form. Line is used to suggest
something of substance, layers of perspective; what existed before or
what might be. Other paintings use obvious line separation as a
statement on how each of us observe things differently.

There is a natural flow and relationship between what both artists are creatively saying in their respective art forms.

The exhibition opening is on July 11th, 6:00-8:00pm.

    Hi Cathy, I remember your piece. It was beautiful and easy to see and appreciate the amount of time it must have taken. It was almost impossible to get finished pictures during the felting week. There was so much going on. After this exhibition, if I can find some, I'll email them to you.

    I love the texture on the grey tunic. It looks like stratified rock. What a gorgeous piece!
    Wishing you a wonderful opening and showing.

      Thank you Pat…there's lots of geology and mapping going on in this collection. I'll tell some more of the story over the next few weeks.
