This show is an invitation to experience the beauty and complexity of our internal body. For me it is an exploration of the intricacies of my anatomy and the immense aesthetic possibilities of its internal structures. The internal systems work as metaphors to social, spiritual and environmental connections. The shapes can be read as anatomical configurations, but can also have other meanings in relation to the richness and elaborate depths of the inner life or the way I perceive the world. Maria Gomez-Umaña

Remember Breathing  

Mixed media sculpture: Maria Gomez-Umaña

Maria Gomez-Umaña is a Colombian visual artist who has lived in Canada for 15 years. Throughout her career she has been exploring the concept of Healing and how that relates to the body, mind and spirit. This work throughout several dynamic series has been exquisitely rendered as beautiful mixed media objects that we instantly engage with as pieces of art then begin to delve into further as we see the focus of the composition.

Lily Swain Brady : new mixed media paintings

Chandler Swain : print making

Lily is continuing her work with mysteriously and beautifully layered imagery using vintage photos, drawing and painting. Nuance with colour as the path to emotional response is critical to the paintings.

Marina Malvada

Cosmology  

The sciences, particularly astronomy and geology, fuel Marina Malvada’s passion for art. Her methods resemble those of the action painters of the mid 20th century combined with detailed photorealism.

Her work has appeared in British Vogue, The Huffington Post, The Daily Mirror, and Ripley's Believe It or Not. Notable collectors include Col.Chris Hadfield, Brian Downey and Damien Hirst.

“I combine data with artistry to evoke the feeling of wonder we have when we gaze at the stars, or contemplate new discoveries in planetary science.”
 - Marina Malvada

Susan Rennick Jolliffe

Magical Thinking: a restrospective

jolliffe photo.jpg


It’s been interesting and fun to put this little retrospective together and reflect
with astonishment how many pieces I have created in my 66 years and how
many of the same themes like nature, dragons and tea parties keep reappearing….
hmm?
My training was in clay and paint and conceptual art at The Nova Scotia College
of Art and Design in Halifax in the late 60’s. Then a few years with Historic
Sites Canada, well salted with science fiction, totally defined my perception
of garbage (found object) and material culture.
My sculptural works are often artifacts from some other space and time, humorously
melded together from our local garbage. Drawing, illustrating children’s
books, and working in schools with hundreds of children have fashioned
a wonderfully rich career.
My work is many collections in Canada and has migrated all over the world.
Living in Ottawa for so many years, I am often pleasantly reminded of a piece by
someone who is still enjoying it.

 Flights of Fancy

IMG_1397.jpg

Indigenous Cultures from around the world with their rich cultural heritage have 

contributed to the inspiration for the innovative sculptural techniques in my current work.

I use natural and found objects to create pieces that focuses on environmental concerns in a sometimes mythical and irreverent manner.
