- Sara Pearson – Wanderer
Opening Reception: Thursday July 5th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: July 5 – 28, 2018
Using abstracted imagery of crystallic forms and suggestions of remembered landscapes from past travels, themes of transformation and healing are explored from a feminine perspective with a focus on the spiritual connection between womxn and nature.
Wanderer explores the process of loss, forgiveness and the rebuilding of one’s self. In life we wander, searching for meaning, identity and connection. Experiencing unexpected change, letting go of past attachments, picking ourselves up again with the support of those around us and traveling a new path.
In her new body of work Sara Pearson continues her obsession with themes of geological and gemological formations, working with mediums that reflect natural elements of the Earth such as bronze, rocks and clay. She is also interested in the overlap of digital and traditional processes, the visual tangle of abstract and representational methodologies of art making and the optical play of collage. This is Sara’s second solo show with Project Gallery. She currently lives and works in Toronto where she has been a member of Akin Collective for four years. She holds a BFA from OCAD University.
