The Art & Craft of Garden Making
MAY 21 – JUNE 15, 2022
The Corner Gallery’s first show of 2022 celebrates the timeless and subtle joy of gardening as a metaphor for rebirth and connection with the outside world.
Artist Rose Pearson’s remarkable photo-realism draws you inside the harmony and complexity of flowers, painstakingly rendered with extraordinary vibrancy and depth of field. In a second series, Rose presents flowers laid atop text from the book that inspired this recent work. Perhaps in tribute, these flowers, singly and in small groups, contrast with the permanence and finality suggested by the stone-like medium below.
Rose started her artistic career with a B.F.A. in painting and drawing from York University and a B.Ed. from Windsor University. She has worked as an arts educator throughout the last 30 years, currently at the Haliburton School of Art + Design. Her professional life as an artist began simultaneously with the decision to become a mother; the subject of her painting is tied to the levels of experience encountered in her daily life.
Since 2002, Rose has been exhibiting in solo and group shows at public galleries across Ontario, earning multiple awards from the Ontario Arts Council. Her work is in private collections in North America, Australia, Europe, and the West Indies.
