“Let the movement be slow and savour of solidity at the base and rise quivering to the tree tops and to the sky, always rising to meet it joyously and tremulously... the spirit must be... perpetually moving through, carrying on and inducing a thirst for more and a desire to rise.” (Emily Carr)

Please join us this coming April 8th – 21st in welcoming COLOURSHIFT: Perpetual Motion to Arta Gallery, just off of Gristmill Lane; a beautiful returning exhibition exploring abstraction and visual movement.

Motion and movement is a critical element in the work of ColourShift Artists Karen Taylor, Kate Taylor, Lisa Hickey, Mike Smalley and Sann Sann Lam. The physicality in the action of making art translates into dynamic lines and composition, overlaid with the shimmering contract and movement of colour. The ColourShift Abstract Art Collective is a group of artists committed to interpreting the world around them and imagining it in new and different ways. The materials used enhance that communication and clarifies the vision of the imagined piece.
