Introducing our November inspiration piece:
About The Artist:
I was born and raised in Germany. My curiosity about the human body, mind and spirit brought me to study Naturopathic Medicine and Yoga. At the same time I joined local artists’ groups, and was greatly inspired by painting side by side with artist friends, and learning about many different approaches.
I relocated to the Durham area, Ontario in 2000 and found my new home in the Uxbridge area, where I quickly connected to its vibrant arts community and have been a involved in the “Uxbridge Celebration of the Arts” and The Uxbridge Studio ever since. Captured by the immediate responsiveness of clay and its infinite malleability, my focus shifted toward three-dimensional work in ceramic and multi media in 2004.
Over the years I have participated in Studio Tours as guest artist in Uxbridge, Lake Scugog and Pickering, and also was accepted into Juried Art shows in Uxbridge, Whitby and Oshawa. My work was shown in various galleries, including Art Gallery of Bancroft, Aurora Cultural Centre, Station Gallery in Whitby, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, Propeller Gallery in Toronto, McKay Art Centre, Unionville, Charlotte Hale & Associates Gallery, Toronto.
My sculptural work is an attempt to communicate my fascination with human expressions, and the secrets behind the mind and spirit. The stories told by the ‘Spiritual Beings’ often bring to light the question: “Who are you? And through you, who am I?”
Exploring the endless possibilities that are offered to me, discovering the unknown, being surprised by the unexpected – that is what inspires me, and it allows me to work with no expectations, with no sense of inadequacy or limitation. www.gretelboose.com
