Emerging from isolation ~ Whig Standard – Kamille Parkinson

Margaret Sutherland is one such artist who sought varied means to engage with her art production in relative isolation. The results of her challenges were in an exhibition at Studio 22 on the Market Square, which ended on Friday. Titled “Normal/Abnormal,” the exhibition traced (in the artist’s own words) her “bumpy, frequently interrupted artistic and personal ride of the past three years.”

KINTSUGI DRIPS

Kintsugi, also known as kintsukuroi, has become a powerful emblem, not for brokenness, but for wholeness despite the shockwaves in life. It is not about finding beauty in chaos or tragedy, it is a symbol – like the cross is to Christians – of faith and perseverance, of the belief that victory, success and wholeness are often realized through the challenges of life, if we rise to those challenges.

SACRO FIORE

Victor Oriecuia, a Kingston-based stone carver is passionate about his calling. With no rigid rules or expectations, he freely carves, both Italian and local Ontario marble, to evoke his senses and appease his passion. He utilizes the direct carving method, a method which requires no model or predetermined outcome…a method which relies heavily on faith.

Evelyn Rapin – An Artist and Music

Much of her art practice is an exploration of music and its many facets whether it is a particular musical work, a structure of music or a composer’s creative process. . . . She is a great believer in connections and cross pollination between art forms as she relies on a lifetime of aesthetic influences.

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.
