So Baroqué | Solo Exhibition | Lethbridge Gallery | 1 – 19th March 2024

March 1, 2024

More than just a visual exploration of an artistic period, "So Baroqué" is a complex tapestry of emotions, experiences, and influences that have shaped both my art and my life. My upbringing was humble, to say the least, a far cry from the extravagance of the Baroque period; we were "b’roke." Life was tough, yet amidst the hardships, there were moments of joy. Our mother took us to art galleries, museums, op shops, and antique stores, teaching us how to search for the beauty in life and cast sunshine over difficult times.

Intertwining the grandeur of Baroque aesthetics with the understated beauty found in the most unexpected corners, "So Baroqué" is an intricate interplay between art history and personal experiences, celebrating a period that revolutionised the history of floral painting, elevating their status from decorative elements to powerful symbols of life, beauty, and mortality.
