Fortune Gallery – Emerging artist group show in Victoria BC

Fortune Gallery Emerging Artist Show Victoria BC

I’m showing a selection of artworks at Fortune Gallery in historic Chinatown in Victoria BC from March 5 – April 4, 2021. It’s a group show of three emerging artists that includes Victoria artists Rachel Marie and Lyndsay Mckay. Check out their work; it’s really worth a look. It’s an honour to be selected for this show and to be exhibiting in such good company.

The artworks I’ve chosen for this exhibit include a larger painting from my inaugural show “You see me like this“, two triptychs from my “Splice” show, and some additional assemblage pieces from my series “On Use” that I’ve never shown publicly. None of this work has been shown in Victoria.

Fortune Gallery is a commercial gallery; all works are for sale.

Refuge (2019)

The refuge we choose is not always the refuge we seek. We might settle for an uneasy respite from the storm even though our instincts tell us to be cautious. The hardship we escape is exchanged for new dangers.

A quiet knowing (2019)

Plenty of knowing is loud. Much knowing demands to be pronounced, to be heard. Occasionally though we might feel a quieter knowing, a knowing that needs no announcing, that is wholly internal and self-validated.
