Ledge Gallery: Larissa Tiggelers
The Ledge Gallery (+15 level of Centre Court)
Dates: March 9 to May 27, 2015
Artist Reception: Thursday, May 14 from 5 – 8 pm, Upper Centre Court
The Ledge Gallery at Arts Commons (formerly EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts) welcomes Calgary-based artist Larissa Tiggelers as she embarks on the process of creating sculptural representations of her paintings, beginning March 9, 2015.
The foundation of Larissa Tiggelers’ artistic practice is the ‘push and pull’ of spatial perspective. The shapes within her paintings fall in and out of the canvas depending on where the viewers’ eye sits when presented with the work. Over the months of March and April, with a final presentation of the work in May, Tiggelers will focus on translating these concepts into three-dimensional form. As she works, the Ledge Gallery will be accessible to the public, offering anyone a chance to observe or learn more about her process.
Larissa Tiggelers was presented as part of the 2013 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art. She is a long-standing Calgary-based artist and the Director of The Stride Art Gallery Association.
