Cautiously Optimistic

Happy New Year!

A new day and a new decade!

Who’s with me, cautiously tiptoeing into what is hopefully a time for positive change and growth?

2019 was a very mixed bag for me emotionally. I was fortunate to continue travelling and was able to see and experience new things abroad. Closer to home sadly saw the passing of my father in law, as well as a coworker.

Contemporary Art Perplexes Me

Offsite is the Vancouver Art Gallery’s cleverly named offsite public exhibition space, featuring temporary installations of contemporary works. Featured artists are said to, “consider the site-specific potential of art within the public realm and respond to the changing social and cultural conditions of our contemporary world.”.

Festive Friday

I thought it might be fun to share festive holiday shots every Friday this month. In my first installment, I’ll share some of the things that James and I spotted while out for a walk through downtown Vancouver last night.

Lumière At English Bay

Lumière is an annual event here in Vancouver that is said to be inspired by light and artistic expression. A few minutes walk from our apartment, at English Bay, is the current home to one of this year’s 4 public installations. Recently, on my way home from work one evening, I decided to check it out.

Definitely Dali

If you’re strolling around Downtown Vancouver any time soon, you may come across Salvador Dali’s, “Space Venus”.

I’d have said you’d find yourself face-to-face with the sculpture but, well, this Venus is clearly headless. Her neck is adorned with a typical Dali “melting” clock, made most famous perhaps by his 1931 painting, “The Persistence of Memory”.
