Virginia Dupuis | Domesticity | Primecorp

July 9 @ 8:00 am - September 10 @ 5:00 pm

Virginia Dupuis “Domesticity”

Solo Exhibition

July 9 – September 10, 2019

 

 

Artist Statement

I honour domesticity and passing down of traditions, by using artefacts to personify women who nurture. Working in the traditional medium of oil, layer over layer, allows me to mimic the careful patience in the making of the original object. I want the viewer to sense the quiet generosity of caring women, feeling a connection that triggers their own memories.
