Artist Statement 

When I think about water – oceans, lakes, rivers, streams and ponds – I think of the reflective quality of the water but also the process of reflection. Most of these paintings were done during a period of self- isolation and self- reflection due to the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. My vantage point in the pieces over time went from looking out across the water from the edge to a focus on the reflective surface and the depths appearing within. Lilies, various water plants, leaves and branches all inhabit the water’s edge and find a place in the work. Movement and surface, texture and colour all became the material of my inner process. My thoughts are that life is not as clearly visible as it might seem at times; surprises, shifts and distortions are everywhere…but beauty abounds consistently.

Concurrent with Colleen Underwood’s “Window Song”, Art 1274 Hollis is featuring a group show entitled “Harvest Orange”

Window Song”, an exhibition created by Colleen Underwood during the time of Covid, and bringing gorgeous vistas and glimpses of hope through her window views.

Underdood’s work is stunning in its portrayal of the world as she sees it. According to Underwood “While we’re stuck at home the view from our windows has never been more meaningful, so I’ve painted views I have known from places I have loved. I’ve painted the windows themselves – they form a natural frame – and I’ve painted the arrangements in my windows. My hope is that they will buoy the souls of those who see them.”

Colleen Underwood’s “Window Song” and our Art Hollis group show “Harvest Orange” are both showing through to November 3rd.

ART 1274 HOLLIS GALLERY, Halifax’s premiere Artists’ Co-op, features 23 local artists and artisans. Fine art and fine craft with ever-changing new work of original, affordable paintings, jewellery, pottery, ceramic art, folk art, rug hooking and upcycled metal art.

Linocuts and Lightscapes – Along the Saint John, artists Alice Sahagian and Suzan Carsley at Creek Village Gallery til Nov.14th

The Saint John River is very present to many in western and southern New Brunswick. It guides us upriver to Grand Falls and downriver to Fredericton. Crossing over the Grafton Bridge in Woodstock, we take in the river views to the east and west. Frequent travel in these directions inspired us to capture the beauty and strength that the river carries, connecting us with the cities, towns and villages flanking its shores.”

In this exhibition, titled Linocuts and Lightscapes – Along the Saint John, artists Alice Sahagian and Suzan Carsley express their love of the river in stained glass and linocuts. Each image brings another dimension to the celebrated river.

The show continues through Saturday, November 14th.
