The Vernon Public Art Gallery is excited to announce that we will be hosting artist talks for three of the UBCO Visual Arts 4th Year grad students! Due to Covid-19, their year-end graduation exhibition "Any Moment" is accessible virtually and we are offering a virtual artist talk to compliment the exhibition.
Join us on June 4th @ 6-8pm to hear from Aiden de Vin
Artist Statement: As a painter I use mark making to explore memories and emotions associated with place. The gestural brushstrokes in my paintings aim to represent memories of specific people, conversations and feelings. The architectural spaces in the paintings reference various nooks and corners from my home environment. Movement is a key feature in these paintings as our emotions and memories can live within domestic spaces. Memories also accumulate within domestic spaces, each building upon another in the same way that brushstrokes and colour build layers and atmosphere in a painting. For example, I Called Him Crying Then Brushed My Teeth references mundane moments of getting ready intertwined with heartbreak and loss as each was felt within the same walls. Colour allows for an entrance into emotion in these works. Paint provides me with a way to explore how memories both build and break down the spaces in which we exist https://www.aidendevin.com
