Life is not simple; we are all complex and unique. There are many aspects to all of our lives, whether personal or public, and we all have different perspectives and priorities that can either separate or bring us together. This show brings together four artists—with distinctive styles, backgrounds, and techniques—each one contributing a different aspect of themselves and their particular perception of the world through their art.
Shosh Shalev-Minuk (Tuxedo) is a Winnipeg artist originally from Israel whose current work of abstract paintings is a visual representation of her reverence for the beauty and divine presence informing life. Her art brings together light, vibrant colour, and motion to reflect the radiance she perceives and provoke in her viewer an emotional response of wonder at the depth and breadth of life’s beauty.
Cindy Garrioch (NK) is a multimedia artist living in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She is a graduate of the University of Manitoba Fine Arts program with a BFA Honours in printmaking. Born in Grosse Isle, Manitoba, the youngest of five, Garrioch focuses on the themes of time, memory, and perception in her art.
Orly Hasid, who is originally from Israel where she studied art, has been a painter for 17 years. Her artwork, which illustrates her soul’s journey through life, uses colour and line to bring a sense of energy to her art.
Dan Hawksworth (NK) is a self-taught Winnipeg illustrator and painter who draws inspiration from popular culture, nature, and his own imagination. Using art as a way of helping him understand himself and his place in the world, he moves between a variety of styles, subjects, and mediums as he tries to grow personally and artistically.
Connie Wawruck-Hemmett (NK/St.Paul area) is a Manitoba visual artist who works in a multitude of mediums, from painting to photography to ceramics, and more. Her outlook on the world and her life experiences are what feed her artistic muse. Her ceramics reflect the countries she has visited or lived in and the diverse cultures that she has encountered and studied, particularly the elements that are intrinsic to human existence—earth, wind, and fire.
