quiet vignettes 🕯

< go back to blog overview

Dear Friends,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the opening reception of my show, quiet vignettes, as part of DesignTO Festival on Saturday, January 18, 2020 from 7 – 9 pm at Black Cat Artscape on 2186 Dundas Street West.

The works that I have created for this show are subtle collages of folds and creases that evoke a quiet movement and energy.

There is a simplicity and understated quality in these works that I find deeply gratifying and calming. Fine hand-sewn stitches have replaced my previous drawings. I feel like I am trying to gently nudge these fragments to come together – a reflection of my inner world at the moment.

I have invited Lauren Wilson of Timberlost Designs to mirror the works with evocative and poetic foliage vignettes. Lauren’s creations are soulful and deep. We will create a subtle — almost evanescent — experience of a balanced and poised marriage of our practices.

With this intimate spatial installation, the vision is to create a moment that nudges you to slow down and pay attention — and to reflect the unassuming authority of a unique and unexpected bond.

It is my first show in a very long time and quite a special one so it will be just wonderful to share this experience with you. If you can’t make it to the opening, you can still catch the show until January 26th any day (except January 20th & 21st ) from 1 – 5 pm.

Don’t hesitate to contact me for a private viewing.

With quiet love,
