Re-wilding: Cath Hughes

Silk Purse Arts Centre, West Vancouver, BC - To Nov 13

by Robin Laurence

Combining images from both the built and natural environments, the collages of North Vancouver artist Cath Hughes pose ideas about the possibilities of “re-wilding” ourselves and the world around us. Her references include geographical maps, lost civilizations, space exploration, modern architecture and the life forms with which we share this planet. In some works, brilliantly coloured birds, bees, fish and flowers grow symbolically outward from grim grey knots of buildings, furniture and appliances.
