|ALTERED PERCEPTION, 28" x 54", mixed media on multiple canvases, $3,500. CAD|
The theme of the OMMA Exhibition is "Everyday Patterns" and all artists were urged to take a closer look at everyday objects... just like a treasure hunt. I had SO many ideas (and still do). I settled on the dramatic imagery of a particularly ornate ceiling in the Bodleian Library in Oxford, England. My graphic depiction is an altered black & white study from a photograph I took in 2008, while visiting this amazing library. Just imagine being a student at Oxford and encountering this gorgeous architecture every day!
I am thrilled to report that "Altered Perception" was juried into the exhibition yesterday and you will be able to see it in "in the flesh" starting next Saturday in Perth, Ontario. And in my studio until this coming Thursday...
