FEBRUARY 11 - 25
This exhibition represents two decades of work from Madeleine Wood. Her career has been based in Montreal, Vancouver and now Vancouver Island. Over the last 20 years Wood has produced a number of important bodies of work, which are featured in this exhibition, that have ranged in subject matter from figurative to still-life. The common element that weaves together all of Wood's paintings is the compositional element of taking a segment of the whole. This lures the viewer in, raising questions of context and allowing the viewer to speculate on the story within each piece. This approach heightens design elements placing a pominance on lines and angles created. Its effect is to abstract the subject matter and allow your eye to move freely throughout the work.
