When I was asked to be part of the Winnipeg Art Gallery's (WAG) "Art in Bloom" exhibit I was so honoured and immediately said yes! "Art in Bloom" is event that is about taking a work of art in the WAG's collection and interpreting it with flowers. Although the interpretations are supposed to be done in fresh flowers, I asked the Chair if I could do something different...and she said "Yes". Since I wanted to be innovative and push the boundaries of design, I created this piece with flowers and succulents made from individual ceramic blooms and mounted them on a base of various other media layers.
My interpretation is based on Group of Seven artist AJ Casson's "Morning Light, Mazinaw Lake" and to me, it is a study in depth and shadows from a rugged terrain in the dull light of the early morning.
The ceramics are a new line I we will be carrying in our E-Boutique within the next few weeks so I really wanted to feature them in a special way.
