“Somewhat Psychedelic”

July 27 to August 8
Robin de Lavis

Opening Friday July 27, 7 to 9

This body of work is a continuation of a series begun in the 60’s when I was living in relative isolation far removed from what we call urban living. Sitting in my small cabin by lamplight I would begin to draw without having any conscious awareness of the outcome. Money was scarce, so my only materials were a 12 colour set of Reeves watercolours, a pen and nib, some India ink and blank sheets of paper. It was a contemplative existence that became the genesis of what would become my life philosophy, one rooted in co-existence with all manner of creation.

My paintings are an invitation to the viewer to look more closely at the hidden costs of experimentation and the assumptions we collectively make in our desire to control our environment and ultimately, ourselves
