The exhibition takes you behind the scenes by presenting sketches created as meditations alongside the mixed media paintings they inspired.

About the Artist

Nanette Moss (b. 1973) is an emerging Canadian and American artist living in Nanaimo, BC. Moss came to mixed media visual art via multi-media performance art. She applies the same approach of spontaneity within a framework to push her skills, combining unexpected elements to shift the perspective of the viewer.

Hearing loss led Nanette from performance art to 2D art with a heightened focus on the visual and tactile senses. Nanette uses color, shape and texture to express emotion. Botanical illustration and expressionism are influences. Themes are transformation, the power of reframing, and healing through contemplation in nature.

In support of our community, 10% of the artist's sales in March will benefit the Nanaimo Foodshare Society.
