ART FOCUS DEMO with FIONA TANG
November 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PSTFree
Emily Carr Alum Fiona Tang’s work has been shown in numerous Vancouver-area galleries, in group, dual and solo shows.For this Demo Fiona says.. ” I will be talking about my artist journey, my thought process and how I came up with the idea of my solo show and also talk about my discovery of the new drawing medium that I introduced in the solo show – invisible ink”.This is Fiona’s Solo Show Statement at Queen’s Park Gallery which is on until Nov. 28th.:“Bare” is a solo art show that offers a unique and intimate experience by local Artist Fiona Tang. Tang invites viewers to discover hidden animals with the use of blacklight flashlights. The show reveals a glimpse into Tang’s mental struggles in the most bare form.“Bare” invites viewers to get close and experience the artwork. At first glance the atmosphere of each drawing seems empty and bare but the viewers are given the key – a blacklight flashlight to unlock what’s hidden within each drawing. Through the use of blacklight flashlights animals emerge from the dark. These hidden animals represent Tang’s mental health condition of feeling trapped with anxiety and depression in the past year. Tang has felt robbed invisible and silenced by her own mental health and the struggles are buried beneath the surface. One that struggles with mental health may look physically healthy but are unwell inside. Tang is often known for her large scale drawings of powerful and fierce animals such as tigers however this show takes a different approach where the fighting animals are caged in the depths of the drawings. Come take a dive into the world of invisible.
