Poppies


July 20 – September 30, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, July 20, 7-9pm

Artist Talk: Sunday, September 30th 2 PM

Amanda McCavour is a Toronto-based artist who explores the 2D and 3D elements of line through large fibre installations. Intrigued by the assumed vulnerability of thread and its possibility for strength and structure over fragility, McCavour brings her line drawings to life through experimentation with thread. Describing her own work as being “drawings that are made out of thread”, she takes inspiration from her surroundings to sew to life by crossing threads together and over each other, onto fabric that dissolves in water, to create strength.

Poppies is an installation comprised of hundreds of fibre poppies created by Amanda McCavour, suspended in the air in the gallery space.
