Challenge number seven was from Abstract artist and Calligrapher Karen Wynne Mackay.
"Vessels" 5'h x 9'w, acrylic, charcoal, oil, pencil $4500
I used this image as my inspiration because I felt it brought us all back to the starting point. The Collective group started because of our residency on Toronto Island being cancelled during the COVID time.
This piece was created on my previous residency and to me contains vessels of many things such as: memories, parenthood, friendship, love, sadness, frustration, endings, new beginnings and Joy! This is the largest piece I have ever done.
I was hoping this would inspire the group to create a piece that depicted feelings of creating during COVID and/or life as we know it now. Full circle.
