Jarvis Hall Gallery presents CORRI-LYNN TETZ — Diviners
Opening Reception: Friday March 3, 5-8 pm
Exhibition: March 3 – April 13, 2017
Jarvis Hall Gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition with Montreal based artist Corri-Lynn Tetz. We hope you will join us on Friday, March 3rd between 5-8 PM for the opening reception. Artist in attendance.
The exhibition Diviners, brings together paintings made during a three-month residency on the island of Gotland, Sweden, at the Vermont Studio Center and at home in Montreal. With a focus on fringe spiritual communities and ideas of myth and mystical experience, these works espouse the melancholic ethos of romantic landscape painting, imagining the figure and landscape as an armature for paint exploration and poetic longing. Whether the images were triggered by Gotlands’ creation myth and the islands rocky shoreline, or by photos of women protesting the ominous arrival of D.J.T, Diviners reveals an attachment to transforming found images through the act of painting and an attempt to discard the utopic/idyllic weight of a figure in landscape in favour of more evocative, interior, dreamscapes.
Corri-Lynn Tetz studied painting and drawing at Red Deer College, Emily Carr University and in 2015, received her MFA from the Painting and Drawing Department at Concordia University. Her work was included in the Magenta Foundations publication Carte Blanche: A Survey of Canadian Painting and was featured as a finalist in the 2012, RBC Painting Competition. In 2016, Tetz was awarded the Brucebo Foundation’s Gotland Residency and received project support from both the Elizabeth Greensheilds Foundation and the Conseil des art et des Lettres du Quebec. Her work has been exhibited in Calgary at Jarvis Hall Gallery, as well as in Vancouver, Montreal and in Visby, Sweden. This spring, her paintings will be featured at Lisa Kehler Art Projects in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The creation of this work was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation.
