OUT OF THE EARTH
Claire Olivier & Melanie Thompson
June 11—July 5, 2014
Artist Talk and Reception: Sunday June 15, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Residents of Salt Spring Island, Thompson and Olivier work to capture the essence of nature using two distinct artistic media. Thompson weaves natural materials into standing lamps, which cast a shadowed glow when illuminated. Olivier fashions her work by either coiling or slab-building clay, sometimes a combination of both, after which she fires these creations in a large pit using many organic materials. No two of their works are ever alike. Both artists seek to repurpose nature, building on the beauty found in their surroundings.
