However I am enjoying a break here in Vancouver.
First a trip to the Vancouver Art Gallery on my way to Saltspring Island
Heard some gospel music by Marcus Mosely Chorale, in a “Gospel Christmas”
Saw Between Object and Action
Not sure if I am allowed to post these images... I am sure someone will let me know if not (though photography is allowed ( I asked).
These by Evelyn Roth... very powerful
This for a quilt I will never make:-
Lovely friends at SDA Vancouver welcomed me in last night and today I went 'a gallery hoppin' with Jennifer and Michelle and a good time was had by all....
Seems like paper cutting is quite the thing these days.... (see Rogan Brown)
Chiu Yu Wen with Water Fairies Reproduction Project
I was intrigued by these heads...
We decided that this work is Saori Weaving, with metal warp and partly metal weft. It had been displayed previously outdoors in a wood. Here it was juxtaposed against the rectilinear ceiling construction, which I rather liked.
But I am so pleased to see that my camera did cope ever so well with the rather dark area... used for this piece... as I think they were aiming at the piece casting shadows ... but that hadn't really worked.
What I loved was the transparency of areas where there was no cotton, silk and ramie, just the wire...
This one is for you Terri. Do you know this artist?
Yuma Taru - Convolution of Life
Some of the pieces were quite challenging to understand, and I think we were all conscious of the time ticking away, so a second visit might be required. This piece, a canoe overflowing with ribbons (I didn't record the name, sadly), cast a lovely shadow in this beautifully lit gallery. And you know I am all about shadows these days:-
