Awakening of Consciousness and Comparing Mythologies
128 King Street, Truro, B2N 3L4, Bay of Fundy & Annapolis Valley
Visual Voice Fine Art gallery is proud to present two concurrent solo exhibits: 'Awakening of Consciousness' and 'Comparing Mythologies', featuring new mixed media paintings by Leya Evelyn and new sculptures by Joanne Solway.
The eclectic show is a refreshing mix of abstract and figurative work, inspired by higher metaphysical concepts.
Leya Evelyn's large and small oil and mixed media paintings have a powerful, vibrant and dynamic presence that cannot be ignored. She explains her impetus: "This work is motivated by a need to create that goes beyond what is familiar to me, that can expand my own experience and do so equally for the viewer."
Joanne Solway's sculptures, delve into her first nations roots to explore: "spirituality and my purpose in this life, the innate sense of right and wrong, a deeper meaning that ties us together." Four of her clay pieces depict her own creation myth, the 'Awakening of Consciousness'. Six other accompanying sculptures, also depict her bird spirit guides, Raven, Owl and Chickadee, in a realistic sizes and colorations.
