Artist Reception for:

Kari Woo - The Anatomy of My Heart
In Canada our cultural geography is just as vast and diverse as our physical landscape. It is in this geography that my current work is positioned. Deeply informed by my cultural heritage, both in the subject matter it addresses and aesthetically, I employ personal narrative as a vehicle to address the issues of sense of place, appropriation, memory and cultural identity. This is achieved through the reinterpretation and manipulation of family photographs, the use of cultural and historical family artifacts and culturally significant materials such as jade, high carat gold and pearls.

Ed Bamiling - Earth Rhythms
Texture......form......colour......movement......time.....Ripples of wind and water, the ever-changing play of light - the sheer energy of it all...
I am deeply affected by landscape and the wild diversity of our physical surroundings, the patterns and rhythms of the earth. Some are products of daily or seasonal fluctuations, others of singular events, from miniscule to massive, gentle to catastrophic. A cloud-shadow, however brief, changes the dynamic of a scene. Raindrops leave their traces on rock, sand or window. Sometimes it is we who are the catalyst.
