Se ci pensi è come se io non fossi mai esistito ai tuoi occhi. Non faccio rumore eppure smuovo mari e monti ogni giorno.
E la notte sono Luna, mare, stella cadente e barchetta di carta. Ti vengo a trovare.
In silenzio tutto appare e tutto scompare.
Ma tu non ti preoccupare.
Made some new handmade business cards that I think came out nice! 🌟 ⠀
I already know what I'll do differently when I print more lol 🤣 but for my first lil batch, it gets the job done! I'm excited to include them in all orders from now on yay 😍💃
Painting is my therapy, it is my favorite part of the day, it is the best way to express all my feelings, it is my weapon, it is what makes me breathe with happiness, it is the friend that listens to your madness, it has the ability to speak all the unspoken words, it is simply magic 💫 Today a dream came true as i decided to launch my page where i can display that piece of me and share them to find their new houses where they will do their magic and add a touch of uniqueness and happiness.. ❤
Save the date 20-2-2020 and lets do this! 💪 #abstractart#painting#art#artist#mypassion#homedecor#acrylicpainting#acrylic#colors#abstract#goldleaf

I really enjoyed working on this image. I don't think it's a masterpiece, but it is a very personal one for me. 📸
Have you ever felt like the world is swallowing you whole? Have you ever felt like every day the light at the end moves farther and farther away? I certainly have, and I always fear that I'll be completely trapped and just become another zombie in society, numbing the world and just chugging along. 📸
But just like the hands try to make their way out of the tree, I'm choosing, every day, to keep pushing. I try to surround myself with new things, going out, taking photos of whatever I find interesting, keeping my mind and my soul stimulated as much as I can. 📸
It's really easy to fall into the mouthof a world that's hungry for whoever falls into weakness and hopelessness, and that's one of our biggest battles. It's up to me, you, us to fight through the difficulty and shine brightly like we are meant to. Don't give up! 🙏
We are so excited for this!
‘A Year In Transit’
February 21st-24th in our gallery!
About the exhibition: ‘Emotionally intense thoughts and feelings conveyed in handwritten form, love letters were once the only means to connect people across distances. In today’s fast-paced world of computer-mediated communication, people in long-distance relationships are turning to digital media to manage interpersonal interaction and maintain their connections. Although the desired outcome is intimacy, they are often left with contradictory feelings of isolation and detachment.
Bettina Harvey and Steve Hawkins are interested in how communication within a relationship flourishes despite technology. By merging high-speed digital messaging and traditional painting techniques, their work employs a socio-behavioural perspective to explore the role of love letters in contemporary society.
Throughout all projects, the pair’s methodology is consistent. By capturing and texting iPhone images that represent observations of his everyday life and experiences, Steve initiates a connection with Bettina. She responds by reimagining the texted images in her studio. Through this process, the distance between them becomes less significant, as they remain constantly engaged in imaginative reflection about the space their loved one occupies.
The choice of media is as carefully considered as the subject itself. Intrigued by the “in-your-pocket” communication capabilities of the iPhone, Steve works with texted images—a medium as accessible as it is impermanent. Conversely, Bettina works with the ancient medium of encaustic, creating richly textured, luminous paintings. Responding to the immediacy of digital photography, the process of working with beeswax and damar resin is slow and permanent, yet forgiving. Together, Bettina and Steve use these multi-media approaches to craft an aesthetic conversation that bridges distance.’ #alternativesart#alternativescreationstudio#art#artist#artistofinstagram#makeart#dowhatyoulove#artshow#eastvan#eastvancouver#vancouver#vancouverbc
