Meghan Hildebrand: Changing Channels
Madrona Gallery, Victoria, BC - Apr 23 - May 7
These colourful paintings by Powell River artist Meghan Hildebrand vibrate with joy, wonder and an element of the fantastical. In her artist’s statement, Hildebrand says she tries to explore “sensations of wonder beyond representation of the actual thing or place.” Working in acrylic and watercolour, she creates landscapes that appear suspended between earth and sky, day and night, reality and imagination. The aurora borealis and flashing pink comets light up icy white mountains and aquamarine lakes.
