“Uncharted Wonders” – a solo exhibition featuring playful work by local artist Meaghan Crow

Staying Creative Gallery
#103 – 7162 West Saanich Rd, Brentwood Bay
Monday/Tuesday by appointment only
Wednesday to Sunday 12-5

Uncharted Wonders” showcases a selection of Meaghan Crow’s surreal acrylic paintings. Whimsical, wacky, and wonderful, Crow’s unique twists on reality create new imaginative scenes and creatures for the mind and eyes to ponder. This collection of works shows a range of Crow’s paintings from over the past few years. Each acts as a window into another place or dimension, taking elements of the familiar and combining them to create the unknown.

For both her creatures and landscapes, Crow uses a combination of drawing and intuition to come up with ideas for her new works. Oftentimes she will have visions of her later creations before falling asleep, or while meditating. She sketches the ideas, and those ideas are often the ones she chooses to move forward with to create her paintings. Once she has a full concept for her piece, she uses many different photographic references in order to portray the different elements in a piece with detail and precision. This dance between creating something entirely new while also working through the technical techniques to portray a level of realism keeps her engaged, and continually developing as a painter. She hopes that her work lights up viewers’ imaginations, and transports them out of their day-to-day lives into a moment of wonder.
