Gryphon Living

The Every Art Original

Media Preview Event

July 31, 2018

Gryphon Musée’s Every Art Original Exhibition officially opened its doors after our Media Preview event last week. This is the second exhibition of the year, featuring two talented emerging artists, Fiona Tang and Caitlin Reid. Each of their artwork on display carries a delightful and unique story from the artist. Hence, speaks to the theme of the exhibit, Every Art Original, where everyone interacts with, experiences, and expresses art differently.

The opening event was a success, and we are thrilled to see our guests enjoying the surrounding artwork while immersing themselves in the world of our two talented artists. Fiona and Caitlin were there to answer any questions regarding their work, creating an interactive experience for the audience wishing to learn more.

Our featured artists were able to talk about the inspiring stories behind each piece of their work. For Fiona, inspiration stems from her emotions and state of mind, where she channels them through the large-scale creatures she draws. A tiger to symbolize her frustration during a phase when she was searching for her identity, and a majestic yet peaceful peacock, to symbolize the restful passing of a close family member.

Caitlin, on the other hand, indulges in painting landscape scenes of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Her travels across North America and beyond are transformed into beautiful, flowing paintings in vibrant, high contrast colours. Caitlin takes a snapshot of the shoreline, and upon returning to her studio at home, recreates the stunning scenery and adds a touch of her imagination to the skyline.

We believe that art is not just a finished piece hanging on the wall, it is present in everyone’s daily lives, in the form of particular routines, rituals, processes, that we integrate into our day to day to enrich our experiences.

To learn more about our two featured artists, visit Fiona Tang and Caitlin Reid‘s for exclusive interviews.
