Sherry Tompalski, Kirsten Brand and Shelby Assenheimer’s Intangible States Show at Gage Gallery, Oak Bay.
Sherry Tompalski, Kirsten Brand and Shelby Assenheimer exhibited their paintings in the Intangible States Art Show, which opened February 1 at the Gage Gallery of Oak Bay British Columbia, Canada.
Three artists capture on canvas memories and glimpses of the present and future.
Tompalski believes the nature of everything is illusory and ephemeral and consequently, unknowable.
This manifests as a magical and meditative quality in her work. Brand imagines the mystery of a soul’s journey and uses memorabilia to stimulate emotion, bringing to mind a life gone by.
Assenheimer contemplates humankind’s challenge to identify the illusive balance between the natural and the artificial.
Intangible State runs from January 30 to February 10th, 2018.
The Intangible States show was inspired by Quantum physics which tells us that objects exist in a suspended physical state until observed. Once observed, the object’s state is altered. All photos by Graham Thompson.
