You are invited to the opening of "Song to the Siren" which includes new work by Heather Gentleman and Maihyet Burton on Thursday, August 8, 2013. 7- 10 pm at Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts, 984 Queen Street West.

Heather Gentleman will be giving an Artist Talk at 6:30 on August 8th.

"Song to the Siren" is a multimedia exhibition that explores rejuvenation of waterways impacted by water shortages and aquatic pollution.

Industrialization and urbanization has resulted in an increasing demand for water and has had a profound effect on aquatic ecosystems and their dependent species. Oil spills, toxic and medical wastes and dumping of other harmful materials such as plastics are all major sources of pollution that are directly affecting aquatic organisms The premise of the exhibit is to call upon the Sirens to heal the patient, humankind, so that we may again embrace a delicate balance between human expansion and natural preservation. Through understanding the mistakes of the past we can fuel the desire to preserve the present and protect the future. We need to rethink our concept of ownership of water. We ourselves are made up of water, which carries information, as well as intention throughout the human body. Within us are all the particles that make up the smallest drop and the largest ocean.

Exhibit runs from August 7-18, 2013

My new show now up at the Distillery district, called Quantum Entanglement In this body of work I am exploring the concept of seemingly random particles and their influence on each others behavior; instantly , and at a distance, and at the exact same moment in time. The idea of an unseen force that constantly impacts on celestial bodies, (including our own) and also the hidden or dark side of those bodies, and the powers of that force holds over us, even if we are unaware. In this work there is always a shadow aspect that seems to be invisible at first, hidden behind the illuminated foreground component. In many of the works the constellation of orion is present this is because it is the birthplace of many solar systems. I believe that ours was born in the nebula. Just as the symbol of the mother is always present in the story of the child so too is the force of the nebula that spawned our solar system always present in our collective unconscious as a reminder that we are all made of that stardust.
