I SAW A LIGHTBALL SCURRY ACROSS THE FLOOR
February 8 – 27, 2013
Painter and emerging artist Katie Hernandez exhibits a series of shaped paintings referencing works by her favorite artists on view in the corridor gallery from February 8 – 27, 2013. Describing the works, Hernandez explains:
In contrast to the way I usually work, the pieces in this show are exploring a lack of colour, sticking simply with black and white. I continue to explore shape, pattern and surface as main modes of expression. The objects I represent in the new paintings are in direct reference to/stolen from objects found in the works of some of my favorite artists.
Katie Hernandez is an emerging artist from Vancouver Island, British Columbia and a recent graduate from NSCAD University. She has participated in group shows throughout Halifax at Eyelevel Gallery, The Khyber Centre for the Arts, and 2053 Gallery. Hernandez has also presented solo exhibitions at the Anna Leonowens Gallery and Lost and Found.
