SLOWING DOWN

There are people in these paintings, but they’re not portraits. They’re about communing with nature, sun warming our shoulders, wind ruffling our hair, grass cool and damp under our bare feet.

CONVERSATIONS

These paintings and drawings delight in conversations and celebrations. The cakes are inspired by vintage images from Betty Crocker’s New Picture Cookbook from the 60’s given to my mother when she was married. . . . The smaller pastels are about conversations where the objects take the place of people. Larger pieces are a closed circuit of communication, dialogues or soliloquies or larger conversations about more formal elements of a painting.

MISCELLANEA

Overall, Miscellanea is playful but sometimes dark, humorous but sometimes sad, and occasionally mysterious for no good reason at all. As always, it’s the audience who tells the stories.

NEW BEGINNINGS

“Some years ago, as a way of coming to terms with my ethnicity, I began integrating into my predominantly abstract paintings images from traditional Japanese woodblock prints to illustrate the concept of duality – of being Japanese and Canadian.

PERSISTENT

Persistent explores women living their lives, pushing past adversity and trying times to achieve their goals during an era when women were seen first as their gender, and second as people.

Teri Wing

I believe my interest in people started at a very young age, when I was told to sit still and quiet, which was usually at church or a waiting room. I would be handed a pen and old grocery list or envelope from Mums bag, I would draw other people also waiting.

Ingeborg Mohr

Ingeborg Mohr began her artistic career producing watercolour paintings inspired by the landscapes of her childhood in Austria as well as day to day life when she moved with her husband and three children to Saskatchewan. It wasn’t until she moved to Toronto in 1955 and encountered the work of the Painters Eleven that she began exploring the variable physical characterics of paint and color as a means to convey pure emotion over profound meaning.
