Elsewhere …

A thoroughly apropos title.

After the busy-ness of getting the work up for exhibition, and then the opening reception on the 9th, I thought life was going to slow a little bit. Not so.

I have been elsewhere (metaphorically) – catching up on all sorts of things that needed attending to.

Amongst those ‘to-do’ list items: A few images from the exhibition, and the curator’s essay.

A quick shot of the installation work I did in the exterior window of the gallery. The quotation is taken from  Roger-Pol Droit's lovely book, entitled How Are Things? It seemed to sum up so perfectly that I have been striving for, in this body of work, and in my practice as a whole.

Another quick shot, this a face-on view of the main window.

A closer shot, showing some of the detail. I will be back out to the gallery shortly, to shoot a proper set of images of the work, but this does give you some idea.

And inside the gallery …

Our curator, Brenda Barry Byrne, has written an essay examining the use of memory in my work and Brenda Danbrook‘s. You can fine it online here, and a PDF can be accessed here: Elsewhere – Curator’s Essay – Jan 2015.

There’s also an interview with Brenda Danbrook and me in the Sherwood Park News. PDF of it here: Elsewhere – Sherwood Park News Article Jan 2015

This exhibition took the effort of many minds and hands to produce. My thanks to my co-exhibitor, Brenda Danbrook, and to Brenda Barry Byrne for comments, support, and great input and feedback, and to Strathcona County, for building such a beautiful gallery in which to show work!

My thanks and gratitude too to Kaylee Low from Gallery @ 501, Paddy Lamb, and Angele Karosi for their help in getting the work on the walls, and to Sara McKarney for helping me pack it and John Waldron for getting me and the work to the gallery!

Couldn’t have done it without you!
