Canadian painter, Laurie O’Reilly, is currently working hard to create the pieces that will be shown in her next Exhibition at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery in Minden, Ontario, Canada. The work is supported by an Ontario Arts Council Grant and the proposed Exhibition dates are September and October of 2013. The working title for the show is “Extending the Narrative”.
Laurie states that she is a “visual storyteller” and “a visual anthropologist”. As such all of Laurie’s work contains narrative and she is now working to entwine previously created narrative images into new pieces that extend this narrative further in time. Her pieces have an emotional impact and this show should prove to be a powerful show as she works to “balance the sweet and the harsh” in this extension of her character’s stories.
