Welcome to the worldly adventures of SEVEN

SEVEN is a collective of multi-disciplined artists from rural Nova Scotia. Collaboration is the foundation for creativity, where each artist responds artistically in her own medium to a selected theme. Through collective discourse, various elements combine to form a much richer body of thought - adding new and perhaps unforeseen levels of creativity and interpretation.

Rurally routed to their tidal landscape, SEVEN knows, what goes out, does come in.

With our exhibition at the Craig Gallery opening in less than two weeks, I thought to peak your curiosity a bit by sharing my artist statement and one of my images.  I hope you come to our opening reception.  There'll be wine and cheese and yummy treats, great conversation, old friends and friends you haven't met yet and, of course, great art and all seven of us Valley artists!

My Artist Statement :: Streetscapes and thoughtscapes.   Reflected constructions of placeless places where fluid and fleeting exchanges between pedestrians and mannequins occur.

We instantly imbue any human form, whether corporal or constructed, with personality – with story. It's this autonomic exchange which drives my work. I particularly enjoy that this anthropomorphism is applied to strangers, animals, toys with faces and even headless mannequins!

Until next time....
