Kelowna artist Jane Everett explores the intersection of the natural and man-made worlds in Understory, an installation that evokes the experience of standing among the forests of the British Columbia interior.
Large-scale charcoal drawings of Lodgepole Pine, Ponderosa, Cedar, and Birch are rendered on drafting film, sliced into strips, and suspended, looming above the viewer. Light and sound surround and animate the space. Piano notes, bird song, and the sound of distant traffic further layer the tension between art and nature – Kelowna Art Gallery
The exhibition runs through June 16, 2019.
