The gallery in Nova Scotia sent me photos of the exhibition, Patterns of Space, that just opened last week. These are mostly photos of my work in the show, and you can view more photos of Catherine Thompson’s work on my Flickr account.

San Francisco artist, Peter Combe, has a show at Back Gallery Project for the next few weeks. I attended the opening last Thursday and was completely mesmerized by the work.

He creates a mix of portraits and abstract work from hundreds of small circles punched from colourful paint chips, which are placed at an angle to the surface of the piece. The pieces look completely different depending on the angle you view it from, and the colours and tones shift. They are fascinating to look at, and each viewer moves around in front of the work.

The portraits are subtle and the full effect doesn’t come across in photos as it does in person.

A few days ago I found myself feeling unproductive so I decided to lay out all of the drawings from the last week across the floor. It was a good check in to do because I’d produced a lot more work than I’d realized. And now this work is making its way to my Etsy shop for other people to enjoy.

These two are my favourite of the group of drawings I’ve created to date. At the moment I’ve just started working on a piece that will combine paper cutting and drawing. I’m curious to see how well this will work.
