Shannon from Upper Beach Health & Wellness was nice enough to let me hang some of my work on her walls! Her space is beautiful and meticulously designed and decorated, I couldn’t get over how much the vibe seemed to add to the paintings – and not the other way around.
I don’t know if its because it’s been around for awhile, but the above painting (Kid Lefty!) hasn’t been my favourite for some time. But with that couch! I couldn’t get over how well everything worked together.
The timing worked out perfectly so that Faye and I could hang some of our new braille paintings. Here are some more photos of the newly decorated space:
Peeks of colour throughout the space:
And finally, here’s the first braille-painting wherein we used Faye’s original poetry, vs. a modified quote from Borges or Napoleon. I really, really love this one a lot. An invitation to the project in itself:
“Put on your coat,
We will escape
the flat landscape
and go where things feel strange
Sometimes it will feel rough
and it will feel late
and we will make mistakes
but we will find lines and circles
and points and people
and then we will find more.”
If you’ve been curious about touching these paintings, Upper Beach Health is a good place to start. : )
