Honour & Reverence…Pat Bragg
February 17, 2022 - March 1, 2022Free
In Honour and Reverence, the 2022 exhibition, Pat has combined beaded photography and wearable art. It represents two sides of her artistic expression, connected mostly by colour. She works with what comes to hand. She takes photographs wherever she is. She loves to capture unique perspectives on the every-day. Often living in isolated places of the north, her art has evolved to included wearable art for our climate. She waits each year for new wool from shepherd friends on the Canadian Prairies and furs to come from local trappers. When the raw materials appear, they call to her about what they want to become. She brings her humble sewing and knitting skills to express the beauty, the femininity, the strength to survive the Northern climate and practicality in these raw materials. And she begins to explore the masculine application as well. The almost unbearable softness of some of the yarns and furs and beauty in our world Colours and images that reflect the natural world- and sometimes the created world.
The meditative quality of home-spinning and expression of love in knitting the yarn for home and family, feeling love and connection with the land and its animals with every stitch the strength and variety of the physical world.
