Opening Reception: Beauty And Resilience – Petra Zantingh

May 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Inspired by the dichotomy of urban and natural landscapes and the many contrasts in life, the exhibit features paintings of fading and hardy flowers reflecting subtle layers of emotional expression, of fragility and strength.
An opening reception for the show will take place on Sunday, May 7th, from 2:00–4:00 pm, offering a chance to meet the artist in person. Remarks are at approximately 2:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Botanicals, trees, roots, and vegetation are common subjects in her work because of their profound and enigmatic spiritual and physical nature. Produced on wood panels, the works use water, watercolour, ink, and water-soluble graphite. Relying on the fragile and mysterious relationship between water and pigment, the process requires patient manipulation to achieve transparent layers that create subtle nuances. In producing her paintings, Zantingh has an inkling of what will develop, but the outcome is often a surprise.
