April & May, 2014
Reception: Thursday, May 15, from 6 to 7pm
Stride Gallery, Calgary, Alberta
The exhibition Half-Grown talked about the unnamed space between adulthood and childhood. This melange of drawings with incorporated ceramic components referred to the parts of youth that are always held on to, and asked when exactly we decided to trade out our playthings for the grown-up world. Distorted versions of household objects became instigators for the recognition of things seen and touched every day, while simultaneously bringing up memories of long-lost toys. This exhibition glorified the significance of the quiet objects that we are forever surrounding ourselves with, and addressed that, in a way, everyone is still waiting to grow up.
