Current Sea: Amelia Alcock-White

Petley Jones Gallery, Vancouver, BC - Oct 7 - 28

by Robin Laurence

The pun in Amelia Alcock-White’s solo exhibition title alerts us to questions of value, intrinsic and commercial, applied to the waters of our endangered planet. Her realist paintings of the rippling, reflecting and multi-coloured surfaces of sea and fresh water speak to the pleasures of immersing ourselves in their beauty while also cautioning against this vital element’s exploitation and contamination. (A painting created by the artist at the show’s opening will be auctioned to benefit the non-profit network Our Living Waters.)
