New Iteration of the Flowerburst Installation

Hammer Cut Stitch Repeat opened yesterday evening at Circle Craft gallery, and one of the pieces included in the show is my Flowerburst installation. This is the third time I’ve shown the piece, and every time I present a new iteration. You can see previous versions at Mary E. Black gallery in Halifax, and at Hot Art Wet City.

The original work was blue and last year I started making yellow and red ones to expand the work further. When I started putting things together for this installation I decided to incorporate some of the red pieces, and chose white foam core as the base instead of black. The photo below is a small part of the installation at Circle Craft gallery with one of the paper wearables positioned beside it. I love how these two works tie into one another in terms of colour and technique.

It was a really terrific opening night for the show with many friendly faces in attendance, and plenty of enthusiasm for the work. The show continues until October 11th, so there is plenty of time still to see.

  1. Rachael, your installation at Circle Craft looks lovely. It’s possible I’ll have a chance to see it because I have to make a dash to the coast this week to help my parents cope with serious illness. I hope to get to Granville Island to see my husband’s paintings (his name is Rod Gould if you happen to see the show) in the current show at the Federation of Canadian Artists galleries, and if I do, I’ll be able to see your art as well.

  2. Hi Anne, I hope everything will be okay with your parents. I’m sorry to hear about this. It would be lovely if you get a chance to see both shows while you’re in town. I will definitely check out Rod’s work the next time I am on Granville Island.
