Art Forms Transformative Force Exhibit
The Transformative Force Art Exhibit collaborated with Art Forms Youth Studio to provide young adults the opportunity to paint, write, record and exhibit artwork in the community. This work was created through a series of workshops with myself and Canadian writer Gary Barwin. The collaboration showcased a collection of visual and audio interpretations of Hamilton’s fondest waterfalls, utilizing tools of expression, creative writing, voice recording and interpretive abstract painting. The exhibit explored themes of self-exploration through nature based and narrative metaphors while also acknowledging Canada’s fresh water status in relation to Hamilton’s urban landscape being identified as the waterfall capital of the world. On Friday October 13th 2017 the group exhibited the series of artwork during Art Crawl in Hamilton ON.
The following video documents the experience during our opening exhibit.
