Morphogenesis literally translates as “the beginning of the shape”. This word not only represents the recurring, and symbolic, ovoid shapes in my work, but my interest in comparing the geological effects of time with those of the psychological effects of time.
Much that happens within us, within our minds and cells can be can visually represented by the shapes and formations of our physical world. Both are subterranean, unseen. Time, emotion, memory, our connection to others and the planet, are all abstract and experienced differently – even within ourselves as we age and change.
Lake Country artist Angela Hansen completed her BDes at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and her BEd from the University of Victoria.
Angela creates with encaustics and acrylics and her work is recognized for its organic-inspired imagery, sculptural qualities and use of texture. She is very interested in the human psyche and that which cannot be seen; that which exists through experience, time and change.
“Tree of Wisdom” is part of a series in which the tree acts as a visual metaphor for relationships, family, and protector of the human condition.
Angela’s art has been exhibited in the Okanagan, Kootenays and US. In 2017 her work was juried into “In Flawed Abundance”, an exhibition hosted by the International Encaustic Artists association in Massachusetts, US, and has been published in the UK magazine, House & Garden’s, Art Edit spreads.
