As we move past summer and into Autumn, our physical landscape and environment transitions into a new cycle of change. This shift means a time of creativity. Nature follows seasons and so do artists, although not always in sync. This time where we are often more reflective and circular in our thinking. The Gabriola artists featured in this show are presenting pieces that reflect for them the shifting of time and change. What comes out of the periods of rest, cultivation, ideation and creation. It is a balance in the lives of artists to nurture these periods as naturally as possibly. Artists need to take breaks in meaningful ways and propagating seeds of creativity takes time. From Karen Cain’s abstract, textured mixed media pieces that explore concepts of time and place from various perspectives to Larisa Bothma’s very personal fibre based Anatomia series. Each piece bringing to life what her family has been through following a traumatic medical diagnosis of their young son. Judy Mountjoy after a period of creative block brought on by the pandemic, rediscovered her love of painting and creating over the past year producing many new inspired pieces. Jan Grenke of Koru Pottery Studio has reinvented herself as a potter after years of a dormant practice. Invigorating her connection to the process and techniques and materials. Delving deep into the magic of glazes and the powerful chemistry that takes place in the kiln. Her forms are always shifting, as she navigates her newfound love of working with the earth. Lastly, Deborah Dallyn, an artist who pushes the boundaries of art and creation at every step. Her pieces in the show demonstrate her interest in ideas about the environment both internal and external. She takes ordinary found objects and transforms them carefully into new constructions. Her works often show reverance to the radicals in society while also exploring ethereal themes of water and light.
