“Corallia” an exhibition of sculptural work by Diane Roy.
will run in the Deer Lake Gallery from July 19th- August 9th 2014.
A resident of B.C. since 1986 Roy was raised in Northern Quebec Diane Roy received a D.E.C in Art and Literature from college in Rouyn, Abitibi, Québec. As well as a B.A in Fine Art and Education from the University of Québec in Chicoutimi.
The exhibition “Corallia” is a survey of Diane Roy’s extensive collection of fibre sculptures. Working with materials such as linen, cotton, nylon and recycled material linen, she creates sculptures that are inspired by and venerate marine life. Formally her fibre sculptures are reminiscent of sometimes familiar and other times fantastical marine creatures. Roy’s work is marked with endurance and devotion to the laborious processes of knotting, bending, weaving and crocheting fibres.
Please join us for the opening reception this Saturday July 19th 2014 between 2-4pm. For more information on Roy’s practice visit her website: www.fibreart.ca.
