SIOBHAN HUMSTON

NOVEMBER 14 – DECEMBER 14, 2013

ARTIST RECEPTION
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 30, 2- 5 PM

Siobhan Humston’s background is in printmaking (stone lithography and etching). Her years of solid practise in the printmaking studio, of thinking in layers as part of the essential process of creating, influences how she paints. In the internal world of creative process, Humston believes the layers and the covering up of certain parts of the paintings, the addition of drawing, then working back into the original layers can be seen as a metaphor for both nature and human nature. “What we see initially of nature or of humans are the outer components, the obvious appearances. As we stay longer to look closer, getting to know something more intimately, we are shown, or uncover other details that we would not at first notice.” It is all about constructing a story both for the artist and the viewer, who inevitably bring their own ideas to each piece.

A graduate of Crawford College of Art & Design in Cork, Ireland, Siobhán Humston has called British Columbia home since 2001. Humston’s work has been exhibited in over 60 solo and group shows throughout North America, Britain, Europe and Australia. She is the recipient of a City of London Arts Bursary, Ontario Arts Council grant, BC Arts Council grant and most recently a Pollock Krasner Foundation fellowship in New York.

Please join us for the Artist Reception on Saturday November 30, 2 – 5pm.
