The Return (Again)
Acrylic & photo transfer on canvas (framed)
Exhibiting in the gallery April 1-28
The Return (Again), 2022, is another chapter in a reoccurring body of works that enlist the common North American Chickadee, a personal favourite I've always wanted to be. It's stylish cap and cloak in black and white, a playful and quick-witted, bold demeanor that one could watch for hours and not be bored. This work, like others in the series, anthropomorphize the songbird with self-reflective or social commentaries and narratives one might be less inclined to discuss without a guise.
My strength I feel is my creativity. Without it I might not be who I am today. Earlier in 2021 I was humbled when my creativity and the art that came from such was selected by Workman Arts as the Ica Pas Art Award Recipient, 2021. What followed was a much needed catalyst for my creativity. I have selected a work that showcases a playful glimpse of myself.
A special thanks for the ongoing support from family and friends, with a nod to Suzanne Fish who pushed me to apply for this award and brought life back to the creative that makes me, me.
