Sandra Meigs: Strange Loop
April 27 - June 15, 2009
St. Patrick’s Building, Carleton University, Ottawa
Artist's talk - April 28, 7:00pm
It’s a strange, strange world – at least according to painter Sandra Meigs. As part of BC Scene, the Carleton University Art Gallery features brand-new work by this stunning Victoria artist. Her grand-scale paintings of architectural interiors explore the relationship between consciousness and matter.
The title of the exhibition refers to the idea that the world outside the mind and the subjective world of the “I” are joined, coming together as a “strange loop” in what we understand as consciousness. Meigs approaches this subject with the signature comic gestalt that has been at the core of her painting throughout her impressive career.
