Fluid Nature will make its last and final stop at the Crowsnest Pass Public Art Gallery this November. If you haven't seen the exhibit, then save the date! The show runs from November 12 to December 11, 2016 and I will be there for the Artist Reception on November 13 from 1pm-3pm. The exhibit explores the idea or hypothesis of Rheological Abstraction:
"Rheological Abstraction is a form of art which takes into careful consideration the rheological properties of the materials being used. Narrative becomes secondary or incidental to the fluid signature of the materials on the substrate. The relationship between author and artwork develops simultaneously through the process of creation rather than through the execution of an perceived iconographic idea". - Mali Vargas
