- Ensō - New works by Diane Lara - January 9 to February 28, 2016
November 7, 2015 to January 3, 2016
Through the use of chance and happenstance Canadian Artist, Jeffrey Spalding has created exciting and unexpected expressive abstractions. Working with Novak Graphics, Spalding uses the off cast printmaking materials and found colours gathered from the works of other artists in a very specific printing process designed to ensure the development of almost random composition making. The results have a very dynamic fifties abstraction meets Pop art vibe.
Organized by Art Gallery of Swift Current with the support of Novak Graphics, Admiral Saskatchewan.
New works by Diane Lara
January 9 to February 28, 2016
Diane Lara, MFA, addresses issues and concerns relating to genetics, genetic testing, and our predisposition to diseases. In her most recent artwork Diane uses a gestural calligraphic rendering of circular shapes through rubbings onto vellum. The installations are completed through the use of three dimensional elements along with light and shadow. Circular shapes have regularly appeared in Lara’s work and have evolved into varying forms of expression all of which have associations and abstract references to genetic makeup – from a single cell to abstract questions about life itself.
Ensō – meaning (Zen circles). Zen Buddhists believe it holds great meaning; some believe the ensō are enlightenment itself. Each is different – unique like the fingerprint of the artist who created it – it isn’t perfect and it doesn’t have to be; it represents the character of the artist in that exact moment of creation.
