THINKING IN CIRCLES: The Root Language of Trees

If trees could communicate with us, how might they share their consciousness?

This collection was originally inspired by a research project funded by the Ontario Arts Council, in which I approached the science of tree root communication. Through the work of scientists like Dr Suzanne Simard of UBC, trees are known to communicate and share resources with each other. In this subsequent series at Teresa Seaton Studio and Gallery, I attempt to illustrate how a radial life form like a tree might extend its communication system to other living beings like humans.

Reception: September 17, 2017   2-5 pm

In Between Land | Earls Court Gallery

In Between Land: New Paintings by Victoria Pearce & Lori Mirabelli

August 31 to September 30, 2017

Curated by Andrea Jackman

Opening Reception: Thursday August 31, 7-9pm

In Between Land presents new works by Hamilton Artist Victoria Pearce and Toronto artist Lori Mirabelli. In this dual exhibition, the artists’ works take different streams to exploring colour and land composition. Pearce breaks down northern landscapes and local well recognizable waterfalls to allow the viewer to literally read between the lines. Through boastful colours carefully placed in linear and labyrinth patterns images of crashing, rushing water down towering walls of land appear. In contrast but still like minded, Mirabelli’s work brings land and its atmospheric affects to forfront first by titles and then by closer analysis of the abstract painting. The imagery at first appears to be well placed geometric fields of colour, but with a more intimate study the suggests of incoming storms, morning light and even layers of rock formations begin to arise.

Struck by Likening explores commonplace declarations such as “Tom Thomson is the Van Gogh of Canada” and Norval Morrisseau is “the Picasso of the North” and the issues raised by such comparisons. These include national aspiration, genius, gender, anachronism, inter-media comparison, humour, and cultural appropriation.
