'Energetic Universe' is a new exhibit of semi-abstract paintings at the Gage Gallery by artist Gillian Redwood.

The exhibit opens on Tuesday, June 14th and runs until July 2nd at the Gage Gallery, 2031 Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria V8R 1E5. Gallery hours are 11am - 5pm Tuesday to Saturday.

With spiraling gold lines indicating the flow of subtle energies, Gillian’s work has been reviewed in Tweed Magazine by Korina Miller. ‘Redwood’s paintings nearly vibrate with energy. It’s almost like watching a play rather than seeing a still canvas. Movement and force parade across the canvas in bold strokes while energy flows in ribbons of colour, connecting one person to the next and to the world around them. Science and molecular structures guide her creative work.

She paints the unseen forces with a semitransparent aspect to the figures. These forces are often portrayed on her canvases with vivid strokes of gold and red acrylic.’ “My view of the world is holistic,” explains the artist. “I like to believe that our bodies are totally sufficient and self-healing because of these creative energy systems happening within them. I’m in line with Chinese medicine in that respect. I look at the complete energetic figure. Beyond the figure, we’re connecting with universal energies as well. In my latest works I focus on the unseen energies within the vast fabric of the universe. From my understanding of optics and the study of light, I use movement and gesture with spirals of colour as streams of light. This exhibit explores the mystical energy of the Cosmos.”

With a lifelong commitment to creative work, Gillian Redwood has been a full-time professional artist for the last twelve years. Having run her own Gallery and Studio-Gallery both in the UK and Canada, she now works as an art educator and in her studio in Victoria. She is a member of Xchanges Studios and the Gage Gallery Arts Collective. An Opening Reception will be hosted by the artist from 7pm-9pm on Thursday, June 16th. at the Gage Gallery, 2031Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria V8R 1E5 (Phone 250-592-2760). There will be a short introductory talk and refreshments available. All are welcome at this event.

The Exhibit continues Tuesday to Saturday 11am – 5pm until July 2nd. The Gage Gallery is owned and managed by a collective of artists who display their work in a series of solo shows, with a new exhibit opening every three weeks. This gives the Victoria community an opportunity to see a variety of work throughout the year from established professional artists.

A member of the Collective will be there to guide visitors and answer questions about the artwork on display.
