Sunday is our day for hanging out doing nothing. But today
was special! Why? Ruthia Pak Regis is having a solo show
that opened today at Yorkminster Park Gallery, and runs until February
13. The show is called Round and round we go until we
see a little more. Her work is spectacular. She focuses on intense
abstracted close ups of the natural world -- what you might see
looking down in a forest.
All but one of her paintings, a large energetic view
of nature at the end of the gallery, are on oval canvasses.
I was told by a friend when I entered the lovely space
that she wanted us to feel like we were looking in a mirror,
looking at each piece. We need to be one with nature, and
these paintings make that clear -- highlighting the
exquisite beauty we might miss if we don't look closely.
Give yourself a treat if you're in the Yonge
and St. Clair area in Toronto, and go and see her
Have an enjoying artists' work day.
