The Beauty of Life

Elaine Waisglass


First Canadian Place Gallery and Roberts Gallery are pleased to present "THE BEAUTY OF LIFE" that comprises a series of 12 limited edition pigment prints, images of flowers from the artist's own garden. These richly intense, still life images hover at the threshold between the real and the impossible. The painterly style in which Elaine Waisglass photographs the blooms belies their state of expiration, which began at the moment Waisglass gathered them from her garden. This is the mutable moment described by the historic Arts and Crafts movement, the moment arising from the desire for beauty, quickened by the sense of death. This moment in time characterizes Waisglass’ images. The exhibition continues at Canadian Place Gallery to June 20. Viewing by appointment: 416-862-8138, Brenda Parris Collectors please contact Roberts Gallery, (416) 924-8731, Paul Wildridge, Paul@robertsgallery.net
