Dunlop Art Gallery (Sherwood Village Branch) in Regina, Saskatchewan 

The Remembering Kind

This exhibition runs May 11 - July 17, 2024 at Dunlop Art Gallery (Sherwood Village Branch).

Larissa Tiggelers' (BFA ’10, Painting) artistic practice explores articulations of care through mindful colour selections, dynamic yet composed forms, and surfaces of softly cumulative gestures. These qualities point to her interest in the unknowability of colour, the limitations of authorship, and quiet expressions of care. This exhibition is composed of near-diptych paintings that play with the visual phenomena of mirroring and slippery symmetries. Many paintings are on a single surface, creating pairings that speak to one another through a shared language while pursuing distinct identities. This creates a discrete viewing experience that relies on slow contemplation, keen visual examination, and deep curiosity to explore the many puzzles within each work.  

Larissa Tiggelers holds an MFA from the University of Guelph and a BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design. Her works are in several public and private collections and have been exhibited at Norberg Hall (Calgary), Christie Contemporary (Toronto), The Bakery (Vancouver), Art Gallery of Alberta (Edmonton), and Paniki Gallery (Batan, Philippines). Tiggelers is an Assistant Professor in Painting and Drawing in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Regina on Treaty 4 lands.
