Chasing the Light

Carol Lynn Gilchrist - Chasing the Light art exhibit in the Corridor Community Gallery, January 3 – February 28, 2020 The Corridor Community Gallery is hosted by The City of Red Deer Culture Services in the lower level of the Recreation Centre (4501 47A Avenue). It provides a public venue for local artists and allows us to share in the talents and interests of fellow community members. Artist Statement: "Chasing the light" is a deeply personal response to the death of my brother last year. In April I packed away my watercolours; their transparency and lightness no longer suited me as I grappled to find a way to paint and work through this period of grief. I acknowledged that there was much darkness within me and so I began to search for those moments which offered me lightness. A light to see, to feel, to reflect and perhaps to return to balance and a place of joy. Late spring and summer I found myself travelling often and on those trips there was a feeling that I was chasing the light. I would catch a glimpse of the sun just over the next hill, or behind a tree or peeking out from a looming and threatening cloud. These chases took on a special meaning; I found my muse in the dramatic skies and open plains, and I also found a source of healing. Working in the studio, I put all reference material aside. I began by laying in thin transparent washes of pink or orange; lots of orange just because it was his favorite colour! I then rubbed, scraped and layered the paint using a variety of tools and techniques. I just responded to my previous colour and my last gestural mark. These acrylic paintings are intuitive in nature, no grand designs, as the concepts just emerged and I remained open to the process. For inquiries and pricing contact: clgilchrist@shaw.ca

Chasing the Light

solo art exhibit by Carol Lynn Gilchrist JAn 3-Feb 28, 2020 First Friday Opening Jan 3 from 3-5 p.m. Artist's Statement: "Chasing the light" is a deeply personal response to the death of my brother last year. In April I packed away my watercolours; their transparency and lightness no longer suited me as I grappled to find a way to paint and work through this period of grief. I acknowledged that there was much darkness within me and so I began to search for those moments which offered me lightness. A light to see, to feel, to reflect and perhaps to return to balance and a place of joy. Late spring and summer I found myself travelling often and on those trips there was a feeling that I was chasing the light. I would catch a glimpse of the sun just over the next hill, or behind a tree or peeking out from a looming and threatening cloud. These chases took on a special meaning; I found my muse in the dramatic skies and open plains, and I also found a source of healing. Working in the studio, I put all reference material aside. I began by laying in thin transparent washes of pink or orange; lots of orange just because it was his favorite colour! I then rubbed, scraped and layered the paint using a variety of tools and techniques. I just responded to my previous colour and my last gestural mark. These acrylic paintings are intuitive in nature, no grand designs, as the concepts just emerged and I remained open to the process.

In April I packed away my watercolours; their transparency and lightness no longer suited me as I grappled to find a way to paint and work through this period of grief. I acknowledged that there was much darkness within me and so I began to search for those moments which offered me lightness. A light to see, to feel, to reflect and perhaps to return to balance and a place of joy. Late spring and summer I found myself travelling often and on those trips there was a feeling that I was chasing the light. I would catch a glimpse of the sun just over the next hill, or behind a tree or peeking out from a looming and threatening cloud. These chases took on a special meaning; I found my muse in the dramatic skies and open plains, and I also found a source of healing. Working in the studio, I put all reference material aside. I began by laying in thin transparent washes of pink or orange; lots of orange just because it was his favorite colour! I then rubbed, scraped and layered the paint using a variety of tools and techniques. I just responded to my previous colour and my last gestural mark. These acrylic paintings are intuitive in nature, no grand designs, as the concepts just emerged and I remained open to the process. For inquiries and pricing contact: clgilchrist@shaw.ca

I began by laying in thin transparent washes of pink or orange; lots of orange just because it was his favorite colour! I then rubbed, scraped and layered the paint using a variety of tools and techniques. I just responded to my previous colour and my last gestural mark. These acrylic paintings are intuitive in nature, no grand designs, as the concepts just emerged and I remained open to the process. For inquiries and pricing contact: clgilchrist@shaw.ca

Chasing the Light

Carol Lynn Gilchrist - Chasing the Light art exhibit in the Corridor Community Gallery, January 3 – February 28, 2020 The Corridor Community Gallery is hosted by The City of Red Deer Culture Services in the lower level of the Recreation Centre (4501 47A Avenue). It provides a public venue for local artists and allows us to share in the talents and interests of fellow community members. Artist Statement: "Chasing the light" is a deeply personal response to the death of my brother last year. In April I packed away my watercolours; their transparency and lightness no longer suited me as I grappled to find a way to paint and work through this period of grief. I acknowledged that there was much darkness within me and so I began to search for those moments which offered me lightness. A light to see, to feel, to reflect and perhaps to return to balance and a place of joy. Late spring and summer I found myself travelling often and on those trips there was a feeling that I was chasing the light. I would catch a glimpse of the sun just over the next hill, or behind a tree or peeking out from a looming and threatening cloud. These chases took on a special meaning; I found my muse in the dramatic skies and open plains, and I also found a source of healing. Working in the studio, I put all reference material aside.
