For the ECU Grad Show I am presenting my series, the Messages from Trees. Recently my work has been selected for a solo show by the jury at the Britannia Art Gallery. In this series I have incorporated ideas based on Slavic and Central European culture. I have combined history and nature by using wood, where the wooden background becomes a part of the work. I have emphasized the grain as it is always unique and adds interest and diversity to the pieces. The intuitively discovered pattern of the wood grain can connect nature with our past, culture, tradition and history. In the future I am interested in continuing to show my work. This project was a detour from my usual work exploring in oil my favorite genres – abstract, nature, dreams and visions. You can message me on FB, my website stellacastell.com resp. stellacastell.ca will become public later this year. Thank you for reviewing my page.
