Kelowna artist featured at Innovation Centre

Gail Hodgson’s exhibit, Aqueous Vita, will be on display at the Innovation Centre until Jan. 31.

Her luminous, gilded abstract collection has taken over the first floor of the Innovation Centre to welcome people as they enter through the door.

The professional artist created her unique abstract collection of 22 paintings in a fluid acrylics style to mimic cymatic images, cells from under a microscope and images of brain cells.

“I love it because I like doing just abstract but also to create and have the images just show up,” said Hodgson.

Her favourite piece is Red Haired Woman, which is made up of large cells that form the outline of a woman with glowing red hair. The woman is not prominent on first glance, she reveals herself over time to the viewer.

“It’s made of a matrix of holes. It’s forming and dissolving and it’s not solid matter, it’s totally inspired by that science concept,” said Hodgson.

“Cosmology, cymatics and quantum physics are sources of awe and inspiration for my work. My passion for painting is to express the organic, mysterious nature of life, the micro and macro perspectives, of the cosmos and sub-atomic realms,” reads her artist statement.

The artist has her own company, Gail Hodgson Interior Artist where she paints murals on ceilings in peoples homes and painted the mural of Santorini, Greece at Yamas Greek Restaurant in downtown Kelowna.

Aqueous Vita can be seen for free until Thursday, Jan. 31 at the Innovation Centre in Kelowna on the first floor.
