Flux by Lori Ferguson, Reymond Page, Xavier Mutshipayi
April 1 - April 13Free
A trio of gifted artists: Lori Ferguson, Reymond Page and Xavier Mutshipayi met to discuss what they wanted their exhibition to be about and there was only one thing about their present lives that they were sure of: everything is changing. The world is in continual upheaval. In every direction we look, we see change. We have witnessed everything from new social realities being shaped by global pandemic; to environmental unrest as people rise up demanding change; to social disturbances as the world experiences movements like “me too”, “black lives matter”, “pride” initiatives, “red dress campaigns” and the current focus on discrimination against people of Asian descent across the globe and so much more. Change is uncomfortable, sometimes painful, as we all learn to become new humans together—but change can be extraordinarily good when we learn to embrace it at the right time.
Lori Ferguson: oil painter, modern impressionist
Lori Ferguson is a professional artist with a working studio in Winnipeg. Her artistic drive, combined with a pursuit of excellence, has lead her to expect that her work will communicate her thoughts and ideals to her community.
Although she has explored other mediums, Lori’s current weapon of choice is oil paint as she feels it provides a wonderful opportunity to express emotion through colour and texture. Lori’s work is impressionistic and full of a feeling of movement which her art has become well known for.
Xavier Mutshipayi: artist, figurative oil painter
Xavier Mutshipayi is a gifted artist and figurative oil painter who is from the democratic republic of Congo. He moved to Winnipeg in 2015 and has since participated in several exhibitions and has worked with different galleries and organizations. His interest in drawing started from a young age. He was able to perfect his art by learning different art techniques such as hand drawing, pencil, charcoal, pastel, acrylic, watercolour, but his preferred medium is oil colour. He has attended art seminars with different masters such as “Dirk Dzmirsky “. Xavier continually creates amazing artwork in a realistic style by emphasizing emotion and purpose.
Reymond Pagé: artist, photographer, traveller
Reymond Pagé’s work, from drawing to painting to photography, is a vast mix of his varied interests, from representative figurative pieces and highly abstract and colourful work to photographic imagery from Winnipeg to India, Europe to Southeast Asia. The underlying purpose of his figurative work is to slow a moment down and reward the viewer for their patience. Modern society has a continuing need to sharpen our focus while simultaneously destroying our attention span, but with patient study, we free ourselves to witness the extraordinary that runs parallel to us in every moment.
