Artist Deb Silver: Feet Deep in Wet Earth and Watery Pools
May 10 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Until May 27, this exhibition presents work by Fraser Valley-based artist Deb Silver, in which the artist seeks to combine and harmonize Coast Salish cultural teachings and scientific inquiry as they relate to plant knowledge, ecology, and analogue photography.
For her most recent project, Silver specifically sought to link plants, root systems, waterways, and lichen together in a single photo series documenting intimate landscapes in Pelhó’lhxw territory (eastern Chilliwack). Silver draws on traditional Stó:lō practices of using lichen as a base for coloured dyes, and combines this with knowledge gleaned from horticultural research and a scientific method of trial and error to arrive at her finished images.
