excerpt from the exhibition guide
Meaningful photographs, gestural paint marks, collage, bold colours, poetry, and sweeping handwritten text are all manifestations of expression that allows Lussier to claim these moment-in-time spaces as her own. One may glimpse the origin poems within each painting of this exhibition and seek to understand the core emotion or sentiment behind each one, we have all been there - perhaps not physically, but mentally. These fifteen artworks are a deeply personal exploration ofbeing aware and taking ownership over one’s mental health.
