"I would go out every morning and collect wild flowers to paint and live with-- a presence that would observably deteriorate. In this process of painting and living with the season/wildflowers, my practice explored ideas of honouring, offering, holding and ultimately loss. Through this process, I engaged with ideas of vanitas and natures mortes. This very classical idea of a still life has a new relevance in a digital world where most images and 'reality' are googleable--the series, records of loss, deals with the immediacy of engaging with what is at hand, of the transitory."
Angie Quick (b.1989) is a self-taught artist working in London, ON. She is known for her large oil paintings which explore flesh in a historical and contemporaneous manner. Her practice experiments with the nature of language and sensation within both a visual and performative context. She has received several grants and has shown throughout Southern Ontario.
This exhibition will showcase a series of Angie's more recent florals.
