British Columbia artist Laurel Terlesky exposes dependency on electricity and power in this series of surrealist pop culture works. Created on large canvas using oil, acrylic and aerosol, she presents electricity as part of the human sense of self. (Above: Guitar Jack, 24″ x 36″; Below: Electric Feel 36″ x 48″)
Terlesky, based in Squamish, B.C., has works on display in an exhibition organized by the North Vancouver Arts Council through June 19. Her themes include sustainable energy, spirituality, and the human body.

Wow she’s amazing
Yes, incredibly so. Her stylizations are just fabulous. Thank you for taking the time to comment.
Love all the colour. It’s pretty neat that her work is so urban and industrial when she lives in a place that is as natural as Squamish.
That’s a really great point. What I didn’t put in the post was she lived in a whack of N. American cities from San Francisco to New York and Montreal to Vancouver before settling in B.C. So you’re very astute!
Ah, interesting! Sometimes only distance gives us the opportunity to distill our experiences.
