PRAXIS

PRAXIS is a Winnipeg women ceramic art show.

My work in the exhibition examines how a ceramic piece can be completed by what it is used for; what is put inside the vessels we create – whether it is soup in a bowl, coffee in your cup or flowers in a vase.

It a preemptive way of thinking as you create; it is knowing that the full work of art can never be realized until it is used for it’s purpose.

I am also playing with light in this exhibition and how it can distort reality – change the shape and shift your thinking.  This facet of the exhibition is a comment on how meaning can be construed; how different interpretations can change the function of art pieces.

Opening: Friday October 14th 7-10 pm

After: October 15th – 25th

Gallery hours

Cre8ery Gallery, 125 Adelaide St. Winnipeg MB

Free admission

Earth Day Artist Talk

Why I Do What I Do; (3)

April 22nd, Earth Day, I gave a talk on how I try to impact our planet in positive ways, and how I see humans fitting into and improving our environments.  This relates to my art practice as the pieces I create are meant to help link us to their inspirations; the textures and feelings I see and experience as I travel outside, face to the sun, in our world.  We are a part of what we create and I enjoy making vessels that connect us to the outdoors; be it off the grid or on the grid; submerged in untouched landscapes or city living.  We play a role in all these situations and I am successful in communicating this idea when my work is bought and brought into living spaces, as our inherent connection to nature and everything we’ve been able to create from it’s resources can be thought of and remembered daily.

 

Spring 2016 Studio Show & Sale

Creating in the studio over the Winnipeg winter months always seems like my art hibernation;  little contact with people, immersion in the work and the material; immersion in expression and new ideas.  For me, it’s a time to cozy up inside and look out the window onto the white world; a time to explore the quietness of nature under it’s soft blanket of snow.  And than spring comes…….

I feel myself become more awake, alert to socializing and running free in the world.  I feel myself shedding my layers, exposing my skin to the sun and welcoming in new, fresh energy and inviting connections once again.

I’d love to see you at my Spring Mother’s Day sale; I’d love to connect, birth new ideas and spark new conversations as the cycle of seasons starts over, once again.

Spring (1)

*Warm & Bright* 2015

 The time is near; where we hold each other dear.  I can taste the hint of winter in the air and it invigorates my senses.  The stew is on the stove; warm and waiting for you with fresh sourdough buns; melted butter.  The winter will wrap me in a warm and bright blanket of white; soft and healing.  A fresh start is on the horizon.

Join me for a winter sale at my studio.  I have a new work.  The series, ‘Once Upon a Winter Wander‘ draws inspiration from my wanderings in a white city during winter.  And my texture series will flourish in abundance, as usual.
