    Painter Tiffany Blaise's Storm series explores the beauty in
    disaster. Like a snapshot, the paintings capture a moment & convey a narrative utilizing the key themes of movement & transformation. The clouds fill most of the canvas, leaving only a sliver of horizon to ground the work, making the clouds feel powerful & dominant. Full of contradictions, the storm series juxtaposes large & small, dark & light.
    Vancouver-based Blaise uses layer upon layer of oil paint to create a luminous & sumptuous effect while introducing movement through blending & mixing. While each piece is being painted it evolves & transitions quickly, like an approaching storm.

    Opening reception: Tuesday, March 7th, from 6-8pm
