Lost City Archives: Etchings & Encaustics

Solo show at David Kaye Gallery, Toronto

October 14 - November 14, 2010

Lost City Archives represents a quiet solitude of a fantastical place. The work combines intricate linear graphics that form an overall calming sense of order and balance. It is a culmination of trips not yet taken in search of roots and connections. It resides in the imagination, caught in glimpses out of the corner of the eye.

 

For many years this ‘place’ has been revealing itself to me in fleeting moments. I have an unexplained familiarity and passion towards cultures and places that are not part of my genetic makeup. In hopes of gathering more pieces of the puzzle, Lost City Archives is an exploratory journey of these moments. - Loree Ovens
