Art Exhibition: Gabriela Hirt | Storied Bodies
January 30 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
to Feb 6th. Gabriela Hirt is a self taught expressionist mixed media artist based in Victoria B.C. and raised in post-war Germany in the wake of the Holocaust.
In this exhibition in the Main Gallery Hirt explores through abstract painting and sculpture the human body as a vessel holding trauma, our collective history and cultural programming, and our ability to overcome discriminative thinking. She aims to understand the legacy of colonialism in her adopted home in Canada.
Stylized figures interact with each other in scenes of harmony and imbalance and simplified forms and bold marks and colours invite the exploration of inner emotional states and questions of social justice.
