Lisa Matthias Artist talk
Date and time
Offered in English.
Lisa Matthias Artist talk with the Vernon Public Art Gallery
Join us via zoom for Lisa Matthias’s Artist Talk on Sept 26th at 6:00 pm PST. The exhibition titled Field Marks was created by artist Lisa Matthias, an interdisciplinary artist based in Edmonton. While her primary focus is on printmaking, she also incorporates photography, drawing, and animation into her practice. Matthias' work revolves around ecological issues, and she derives her imagery from direct observation and the study of nature in various locations.
Field Marks is an exhibition that combines art and ecology. The selection of prints includes both representational images and abstract structures based on magnified plant forms. The abstract images, while derived from microscopic observations, still maintain a connection to observable reality. The cohesive element of the exhibition lies in Matthias' artistic style, characterized by dense mark-making and strong contrast between negative and positive spaces. Field Marks serves as a lyrical intersection of scientific inquiry, artistic interpretation, and expressive mark-making. Matthias will be speaking about her processes and current work with a question period following the talk.
