This week I went to Cobourg, Ontario to install Pink Field, Blue Fog at the Art Gallery of Northumberland. I added hundreds of new blue embroideries to create an installation with more density. This install was special and we had so many amazing volunteers help to put the work up.
Pink Field, Blue Fog uses ideas around the space of the garden, as well as silk flowers as its starting point. This piece is an installation/embroidery work based on an imagined and abstracted field of flowers and hovering cloud. The large installation is comprised of thousands of these pieces installed by single threads hanging from the gallery ceiling creating a field of flowers and a field of colour. This piece transforms the interior space into neon environment that is unnatural and glowing, creating a faux surreal landscape.
Thanks to all who helped to put the exhibition together, to those who came to the opening on November 2 and to those who have been sharing images of their experience of the work on instagram and facebook! Here are some pictures from our set up, the exhibition opening and the completed exhibition.
Exhibition runs from November 2, 2019 – January 5, 2020.
