MEET THE ARTIST | Gabriela Hirt
January 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
On Saturday, January 14 join us to meet the artist Gabriela Hirt and learn more about her exhibition Storied Bodies. Gabriela Hirt is a self taught expressionist mixed media artist based in Victoria B.C.
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 colors invite the exploration of inner emotional states and questions of social justice.
