ANDARA Gallery Presents:
TARA WILKINSON | HEADWATERS
Photography + Imagination
1 APRIL – 30 JUNE 2023
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 1, 2-5 PM
Exhibition Dates: April 1 – June 30, 2023
ANDARA Gallery is pleased to present “Headwaters”, the
latest solo exhibition of work by Canadian photographer, Tara Wilkinson - and her first exhibition entirely of digital art photography.
“Headwaters” explores the beauty, flow and energy of streams, ponds, rivers and lakes throughout the seasons.
Originating as photographs taken on location throughout Prince Edward County, Wilkinson then returned to her studio where in post-production she transformed each image into
a work of art using digital paintbrushes … and her imagination
From a pond brimming with life on a warm summer’s day …
to a flowing stream beneath a thin shield of ice scattered
with snow - the resulting works of art burst with colour,
texture, energy and hope. They can resemble the original subject matter or transform the image all together into
another universe. The viewer gets to decide.
By their very nature, “Headwaters” are defined as the original starting point of a stream or river, beginning at the furthest point away from where the body of water empties or merges with another.
“It seemed a fitting title for this show as the source of my
ideas for this work began while shooting on location, then flowed through post-production and my creative process to morph into this beautiful new way of seeing and translating
the flow of water, imagery and ideas”.
