1. Beauty Rest | Mori McCrae
Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery at NAC
Opening Reception Saturday 9 November at 3pm
Mori McCrae was born in Toronto in 1961. She graduated from the Ontario College of Art (Drawing and Paintiing- 1986). For the last 23 years, she has lived and worked in the Niagara Region. She is a founding member of the Jordan Art Gallery (2001), where she currently exhibits her work. The gallery actively promotes artists from the Niagara Region. In 2011 she was awarded an artists residency at the renowned Cill Rialaig Artist Residency in Ireland where she expanded her practice to explore the limenal shift between language and image. In August of this year she attended the Sim Residency in Iceland to explore this shift further.
“My recent work marks the shift from image to word and back again. It’s a kind of sideways drift like a car leaving the pavement, or a ball joint floating in a hip socket. It feels a little wobbly, uncomfortable, and even dangerous at times.
The idea of an edge leading inward also motivates me, our breath coming from the inside, breath on which words travel to the outside and the connection of the breath to the physical body, the flesh.”
