Petley Jones Gallery and Marie H. Becker present: BIOPHILIA
Art Exhibit opening: Saturday, August 17, 2019
Artist in attendance 12PM – 5PM
Come to the opening of BIOPHILIA! For “the passionate love of life and all that is alive” we invite you to come and HELP ENDANGERED ANIMALS WITH THE PURCHASE OF A ONE-OF-A-KIND ARTWORK: 50% of each painting will be DONATED TO Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC). Marie H. Becker paints her beloved themes with an edgy sense of humour: Her acute insight into environmental detriment surprisingly juxtaposed by a bright-coloured
splash of belief that everything alive shares a unifying commonality. ‘Diverse influences inform my art. From my love of the frescoes of Giotto and early Renaissance art, to folk art, colour field paintings, embroidery, and textiles. These might all find their way into my imagination and paintings: This rich historic archive leaves me free to pull together polar images that yield modern and occasionally wry messages’, Marie shared with us. A clever show – curated and designed in the most unexpected way! Come and chat with Marie Becker as she will be in attendance on August 17 from 12 – 5 PM – her
spirit and passion for the life we live is infectious.
