Exhibition Description


Our major group exhibition is all about abstracted natural elements. The artworks evoke organic things such as plants, leaves, trees, roots, seeds, reefs, rocks, feathers, algae, nests, soil, sediment, clouds and shells. They recall processes like new life, growth and decay. Although they evoke these elements, the artists do so in a non-literal way through abstraction. Many of the works are made using repurposed or recycled materials. They are filled with life and vitality. They are amorphous and bursting off the wall as they lunge out towards you. Works range in scale from massive to tiny and use a huge variety of materials and fibre and textile techniques. This exhibition is the spiritual successor to our 2012 show De rerum natura (On The Nature of Things).

Oakville's wonderful cultural centre which opened in 2012 and hosted the exhibition Quiet Zone in Festival 2012, The Red and the Black in Festival 2014, Cosmic Geometry in Festival 2016, and Flow in Festival 2018. We are very excited to show again in this spectacular gallery.
