"Self Portraits in" Series included in Mirror, Mirror at the Surrey Art Gallery
My photograph 'Self Portrait in Open 8 & 9" will be included in the exhibition 'Mirror, Mirror' at the Surrey Art Gallery in Surrey, Canada. Runs August 18th- Nov 18th 2012.
The human image has an immediate appeal and resonates within us. Through self-portraits, an artist can explore physiognomy, personal identity and histories, as well as broader social issues. With the Arts Council of Surrey’s juried exhibition MIRROR MIRROR, 30 artists from across Metro Vancouver explore personal stories and societal concerns, through works ranging from conceptual to very intimate. With diverse media and approaches, some works present symbolic and metaphorical ideas, while humour and wit play a recurring role.
The artists in this exhibition are Joan Adams, Elizabeth Anderson, Holly Armishaw, Colleen Baran, Glenda Bartosh, Cathy Berg, Linda Bickerton-Ross, Lisa Chen, Brandur Coombs, Gregory Dawe, Sibeal Foyle, Kathleen Gaitt, Vivian Gerke, PollyGibbons, Thorsten Gohl, Grace Gordon-Collins, Susan Harmon, Elizabeth Hollick, Lindsay Ishihiro, Hanif Janmohamend, Melanie Lastoria, Kitty Leung, Ferdinand Maravilla, Mehran Modarres-Sadeghi, Carol Pan, Helga Parekh, Melissa Peacock, Linda Pearce, Silke Spodzieja, and Edward Westerhuis.
