Sun Over Swamp

March 28

By Donation

Sun Over Swamp is an exhibition that takes its title from a 1964 painting by Takao Tanabe and features five artists who consider ecology through diverse approaches to abstract painting.

Working on canvas, linen, wood, and ceramic, artists in Sun Over Swamp reflect on our fragile yet globally interconnected biomes. From tracing the environmental footprint of their materials, to employing storytelling, mythology, artificial intelligence, and embodied learning in their processes; Rebecca Brewer, Azadeh Elmizadeh, Rita Letendre, Gailan Ngan, and Takao Tanabe consider unknowably vast and complex lifeworlds through the practice of abstract painting.

‘Sun Over Swamp’ will run from April 27th to June 23rd at Nanaimo Art Gallery. The Gallery is open from Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm and Sundays from 12 to 5 pm. Admission is by-donation.
