I live just outside of Halifax, on Wright Lake where the views change daily with the sunrise, sunset, fog, rain, snow and yes, even sunshine! Although I paint lyrical, non-objective art, my work is inspired by my environment. The shape of the rugged landscape, the fluid movement of the water that surrounds us, find their way into the abstractions on my canvases.
How wonderful that the community comes together on this weekend to enjoy the cultural contributions of the province's residents. There is so much talent that needs to be celebrated. Afterglow makes art a fun and interactive way to showcase the many artists who contribute to the lifeblood of this province. I'm so delighted to be a part of it.
Sharing my art and being part of the greater community is important to me. My art is collaborative; without people absorbing it, it is incomplete. Sharing part of my process and allowing others to participate in the creation of a new large work, will be a great experience for all of us. I'm so delighted to be a part of Afterglow.
I'm actually really looking forward to displaying a range of my work together in the wonderful space provided by Afterglow and to meeting more local artists and seeing their work. It's also a great opportunity to meet new people and introduce them to my work.
