Through the creative experience and its profound link to the unconscious, artists confront the on-going history of the human spirit. The search requires not imitation, but the revelation and expression of those intangibles which can only be conveyed through poetic meaning.” - Rick Rivet
Opening April 7th at 2pm and running until April 27th Alcheringa Gallery will be featuring an exhibition of paintings by Rick Rivet new to the gallery. The series is soft and sensory and highlights Rick Rivet’s emotive exploration into Shamanistic beliefs in a contemporary Canadian context. Set in his distinctive expressionist-primitivism style, the mix of Aboriginal imagery and abstraction creates a dreamlike canvas that captures an otherworldly aesthetic.
There is something about the escape into the unknown with only hints of past stories and remnants of the present, which truly connects with the uncertainty of today. Rivet’s work is a timeless example art that inspires dreams, and connects with us on a deeper, spiritual level.
