Laurel Terlesky: The Power & The Body

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.

      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!
