Emerging artist Krista Sheehan uses a combination of oil, acrylic and charcoal to create paintings focusing on emotionally charged landscapes, some of which carry personal meaning and others are from spaces that echo with a collective emotional weight. Her solo exhibition, Resonance, runs from June 2 – 29 in the Corridor Gallery.
About the work on view, Sheehan states:
I became very interested in the dichotomy that exists between a beautiful setting in nature and the power it has to call up different feelings in different audiences. I wanted to show both the raw beauty and the emotion from the viewer’s perspective, whether it is sorrow, loss, hope or joy.
Krista Sheehan lives in Boutiliers Point, Nova Scotia where she paints using both acrylic and oil. Currently completing her last course towards her Post Graduate Certificate in Painting from NSCAD University, Sheehan is also a teacher with the Halifax Regional School Board.
