Plants for the People
Community Gallery Exhibit: March 2 – May 5
About the Exhibit:
Plants for the People by artist Nanette Moss is intended to connect with the community through joyful depictions of botanicals. Her acrylic mixed-media paintings depict expressive plants with abstract backgrounds. The exhibition shows a glimpse ‘behind the scenes’ by presenting sketches created as meditations alongside the paintings they inspired.
“Hearing loss led me from performance art to 2D art with a heightened focus on the visual and tactile senses. I use colour, shape and texture to express emotion. Botanical illustration and expressionism are influences. Themes are transformation, the power of reframing, and healing through contemplation in nature.”
Nanette Moss (b. 1973) is an emerging Canadian and American artist living in Nanaimo, BC. Moss came to mixed media visual art via multi-media performance art. She applies the same approach of spontaneity within a framework to push her skills, combining unexpected elements to shift the perspective of the viewer.
