Psychologically There

The opening was a great success!
The gallery during installation.

The Opening! 
I took these photos with an ipod so images are degraded. I'm minding the Gallery on wednesday and I'll bring my real camera and take more photos. Over 200 attended throughout the evening.

Below is my artist statement and photo of my work 
(take a better one with more detail on Wednesday when I go in to the gallery)

Elizabeth Anderson, "Slippage"

Art is an expression of human experience, which is extremely personal while at the same time a reflection of collective history. Painting is a way of slowing down the fast pace of our technological age and all its consequences. The exploration of wax medium is a way of registering the subtle layers beneath the surface of conscious awareness. My body has spanned across from a time when technology was mechanical and digital was mostly imaginary. Mixing digital and painting is a metaphor for the late modernity of living in our time or how to make sense of the world without going mad.

Tonight's the opening night

We finished the installation last night. Everyone's work looks great. We've had over a 100 confirmations to the invite. Buttons, brochures with our artist statements, window signage, post cards are all ready too. It's going to be an exciting night. Wish you could all be there. I'll post photos tomorrow.
