House Illuminates presents works by Amy Loewan (RCA) that promote peace and well-being. These ideals are at the core of the artist’s life and practice.
House Inspiring Peace is at the centre of the exhibit. The house is constructed from shuen (rice) paper, canvas, silk and Canadian maple, the quintessential structure is encased by woven paper strips and cut paper. Messages, symbols and drawn elements of ink, charcoal, and acrylic adorn the structure. Loewan wanted a simple house, “like the house a child would draw” and the effect is powerful. Lit from within by Edison incandescent lights the house is an invitation to peace and harmony. It offers protection and a room for reflection.
