Opening Reception: May 2nd 7pm-10pm
On display through June 2nd.

Disrupted Space (move over!)

This body of work focusses on the notion of disrupted space. A variety of orb forms and shapes address the condition of place and how these extractions influence movement around them and how we perceive the path they disrupt. Orbs are often referred to as spiritual spirals, shapes formed by one thing orbiting another. Perhaps one can look at the BC First Nation Ovoid shape, it is the center of many designs in which other forms and shapes evolve/revolve around them. The orb is often the starting point to a sophisticated design, it is the grounding and pivotal point of departure. This body of work includes not only includes the obvious orb forms that disrupt a given path, but it includes the orb that one can transform a surface or place.

The exhibition includes clay works, collagraph prints, photographs, oil and wax paintings, and water colours.

Jackie Wong is a teacher during the day. At the side of her desk she curates exhibitions, orchestrates projects with artist and students, and finds time for her personal art practices.

This event is taking place on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tseil-Waututh Nations.
