"a quiet place"
My installation, "a quiet place", consists of three large handmade clouds and one full moon, suspended from the ceiling and illuminated from inside. The lights inside the clouds can be set to stay illuminated in one solid colour, slow fade between multiple colours, and flash between colours quickly to imitate lightning.
This event is free.
Illuminate the Night presents Ashley Christiansen
Ashley is a Métis Artist who was born in Selkirk, Manitoba and currently resides nearby in St. Clements. She specializes in small, life size and large scale photo realism. Upon completion of her tattooing apprenticeship, Ashley opened her own business in 2011; blackneon, which is a private studio also located in St. Clements. Ashley’s style and quality of workmanship has made her a sought after professional artist, tattooing clients from all over the Interlake region and some who even travel from out of province or even across the border. In 2019 she took her artistic career a step further by beginning muralist mentoring with Charlie Johnston, another Selkirk artist who has been painting murals across the globe for over 30 years. Through Charlie’s instruction and teaching, Ashley has worked on numerous large scale murals, some installed onto building facades, some painted indoors directly onto walls and others that are yet waiting to be erected in their forever homes. Installation pieces are another art form in which she has recently begun participating, in the form of large handmade light fixtures, usually in the form of clouds and celestial bodies, and these pieces are light fixtures that are illuminated from the inside and suspended from ceilings. -- Each year, the "Illuminate the Night" open call is held for artists to propose pieces that will enthrall, excite and possibly introduce Winnipeggers to something they have never seen or experienced before at Nuit Blanche. Projects are selected by a jury of artists and art professionals and are featured in Winnipeg’s downtown core. --
