Consciousness
NOUN
OXFORD DICTIONARY

  • the state of being aware of and responsive to one’s surroundings. – a person’s awareness or perception of something.
  • the fact of awareness by the mind of itself and the world.

    The artwork explores memories and emotional states. The exhibition ignites relationships between artwork and viewer response. It suggests that an individual’s journey in conscious awareness provides opportunities to express relationships between artwork and invoked emotions.

Artist Statements
Victoria Campbell is an artist based in London Ontario, creating with the inner dialog of thoughts and experiences. Using acrylic paint, the work digs into mental health, unhealed wounds, and the want to express yourself through growth while existing under the weight of ones own mind. Trying to share relatable struggles among those who feel outside of themselves, or maybe feel too stuck inside.

Dylan’s work explores his memories and personal experiences, with a focus on prospective. He uses memories as reference for concept and composition; the goal is to recreate these experiences, adapting his thoughts onto paper with colours that help evoke the emotional connection that he has with each memory. Although the narrative is based off his personal experiences, he hope my work can resonate with others, showing the viewer a glimpse into his memory or refection of their own.

Ashley is a London based queer visual artist that explores themes of isolation, loneliness and metamorphosis within their oil paintings and Digital Collage. They leverage the experience of growing up as a alienated individual in a rural community to create mood filled paintings. They poke fun at the trans experience with their ironic digital collage that plays with the idea that they can be their own sibling by merging elements of past and present photographs together.

This exhibition will not be open to the public.
