Group exhibition featuring: Lori Goldberg and Atefeh Baradaran


Uncommon Threads is a mixed media exhibition that will be held at The Deer Lake Gallery featuring the work of Lori Goldberg and Atefeh Baradaran. Uncommon Threads is hosted and organized by The Burnaby Arts Council. The exhibition will open Saturday October 8th, 2016 and run until October 29th, 2016.


In Uncommon Threads structure is the first thing that comes to mind. In Goldberg’s work, the natural forest is combined with large metal like structures often scaffolding, or coloured rods laying on the forest floor. Two images merging two seemingly incompatible worlds into a new universe; she uses a visual vocabulary that seems to address different social and political issues. Such as can man and nature co-exist? Her works are about the contact between architecture and living elements. Baradaran’s work playfully explores geometric structures and their relation to the substrate. The elements are disrupted, often skewed. Her compositions are based on what surrounds her, elemental landscapes converted to their essential lines. Both artists question the coerciveness that is derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an image.

Goldberg is a well-known Vancouver artist, exhibiting throughout North America who teaches at Emily Carr. Baradaran is a recent Grad of Emily Carr.
