Océanides
A solo Modern Batik exhibition by artist Gabrielle Lasporte

In her 3rd Modern Batik series, Gabrielle continues her visual exploration of the human experience by delving into water. Water, essential for human survival, widely signifies healing and regeneration. Through this collection of work, Gabrielle explores the beauty of this natural force as a mirror for our lives.

As we live each day, emotions influence our growth through highs and lows. Just like the movement of water and the cycles of waves caused by external forces, we are destined to live this cycle over and over again. The many layers of dyes within each piece provide another metaphor for the layers of emotions, realizing how embracing them is ultimately our empowerment.

Gabrielle’s work has been shown at notable events including the Manifesto Festival Art Exhibit, Queen West Art Crawl, and Toronto Scotiabank Nuit Blanche.  In 2012-13, Gabrielle was commissioned to complete three sea-themed pieces for private collectors.  Her work on these pieces further inspired her to explore water as a theme in her development as a Modern Batik artist.  She was the first batik artist to participate in The Artist Project, a contemporary art fair in Toronto, where she will be returning in February 2015 to present her latest collection.

Her previous series ” Life Flow” was an abstract visual representation of the life cycle through colour and shapes. Through good or bad, life will always flow to its ultimately destiny.
