Art Reception – ‘Splice’ by Justice Schanfarber
On February 11 at 5:30 pm, the Tidemark Art Gallery will host an opening reception for ‘Splice’, a collection of new large abstract paintings and collage work by Justice Schanfarber.
Justice Schanfarber is a self-taught artist living and working in Campbell River. He makes large and small abstract paintings that sometimes include collage and assemblage.
Justice helped shape Vancouver BC’s art-rock and experimental music scene in the 90’s with his unique sound collage recordings and performances. Today Justice works as a couples therapist and he brings his psychological experience and insights to his visual art practice.
“The purpose of my art practice is to engage with aesthetic forces that I do not understand. My relationship with these forces deepens over time and proximity, and also through the successful completion of work; hence my commitment to the practice of art making.
Working with unintended consequences is a crucial part of my practice. I take risks in materials and process, making mistakes and then working with the mistakes. In this way mistakes are refined and redefined, becoming synchronicities and blessings.”
‘Splice’ will exhibit in the Tidemark Art Gallery from February 4 – March 31, 2020 and can be viewed Tuesday through Friday from 12-4pm. An opening reception for the exhibit will be held at the Tidemark on February 11 from 5:30pm-7pm. Admission is free and all are welcome.
