Transcience Art by Jan Kabatoff – Opening night (subject to change)

August 27, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

Transcience Art by Jan Kabatoff
Living in a rural setting during a pandemic, in relative isolation, has allowed me to discover what my natural surroundings have to offer, and to reflect more deeply on our existential vulnerability and notions of nature and identity.

Historically, wildflowers and plants played a subordinate role to the domesticated showy varieties as fillers in bouquets and paintings.  And yet, not only have native plants served as national and provincial emblems of identity, they are vitally important to the pollinators that agriculture relies on.  Scientists are now telling us that native plants are at risk due to climate change, as they are slower than non-native plants to adapt to rising global temperatures.

The exhibition is reminiscent of the rich botanical history that has informed artists throughout the ages, while at the same time it will reflect on the fragility and transience of life and the times we’re living in now.
