3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 8, 2-4 pm, Artist in Attendance
Toronto-based abstract painter Janna Watson's latest body of work, featured in her upcoming exhibition Dragging A Thought Over explores what the artist describes as her struggle to "drag a thought over from the mush of the unconscious into some kind of human sense."
This approach has engendered a highly articulate physicality in Watson's mixed media practice, one readily apparent in the surety of the artist's hand and the dynamism of her ever-broader strokes, marks of the indisputable maturation of a singular talent.
Watson's emotionally charged process echo the confluence of materials at play on the picture surface, taking shape in her complex arrangements of eloquent gestures, which urgently move towards a dramatic visual resolution.
