Ebb and Flow
February 27 - March 23, 2014

01ovens3.jpg

Ebb and Flow

In my studio I keep a small collection of stones that I have gathered over the years. My favourite is a dark grey rectangular stone that has many intricate ivory lines wrapping around it, as if it was thread spun protectively around a spindle. Wondering what metamorphic forces formed this rock and its evolution began the inspiration of this body of work. I also pictured the ebb and flow of the tide, the continual back and forth of the waves slowly altering the shoreline over time. I imagined the stone as my anchor steadying myself against the current as I too evolve and change. I continue to be intrigued by patterns, architecture and tactile nature of forms. The work in the show includes sculptural elements, etched metal pieces, and prints.

Memory Box Series: mixed media
June 2 - 26, 2011

01ovens21.jpg

The Memory Box Series was inspired by the concept of a shoebox filled with trinkets and memorabilia of childhood delights. In childhood it is common to collect small toys and candy wrappers. As we grow older our collection may include comic books, photographs, ticket stubs and if lucky, love letters. These trinkets can produce a profound sentimental reflection of our past as individuals and as well as part of a collective memory.

The Memory Box Series celebrates this ritual by providing a place to store a few precious keepsakes. Over time the physical accumulation can reveal much about a person’s life. The front of each box has been rendered in a variety of techniques on Washi (handmade Japanese paper) and stitched on to wood. The box compartment is only revealed when the back is explored. In other words, these art pieces are equipped with storage!

Lost City Archives: new etching & encaustic
October 14 - November 14, 2010

03ovens.jpg

Tension and vibrations are formed between lines and objects producing surface energy, where everything is temporal.

Architecture forms a sense of language that is deeply embedded into our experience of place and collective memory. Spaces, both real and imagined, create memory maps that link the experiences of our lives together.

Lost City Archives represents a quiet solitude of a fantastical place. The work combines intricate linear graphics that form an overall calming sense of order and balance. It is a culmination of trips not yet taken in search of roots and connections. It resides in the imagination, caught in glimpses out of the corner of the eye.

For many years this ‘place’ has been revealing itself to me in fleeting moments. I have an unexplained familiarity and passion towards cultures and places that are not part of my genetic make up. In hopes of gathering more pieces of the puzzle, Lost City Archives is an exploratory journey of these moments.
