Carolyn Gowdy’s Scrapbook

Carolyn has an exhibition of paintings, drawings, printworks, collage, sculpture, and mixed media exploring the ongoing experience of life, past and present along with inspired possibilities for the future at Gallery 286 in London.

Carolyn writes, “My art is not just a form of creative expression. It’s a form of exploration. It’s a way of being. I consider it my job, as an artist, to look for beauty, grace, magic, and wonder everywhere. This gives me a sense of purpose and helps keep me in touch with my gratitude for what is. It reminds me that the miracle of life is something to celebrate, document, and preserve. It helps me stay fresh, new, alive in the moment, awake to elements that might otherwise go unnoticed or forgotten. It helps me to accept and appreciate life on life’s terms, to find hidden treasure in both breakdowns and breakthroughs.

I am fascinated by the subject of consciousness, the ongoing experience of being alive and how this relates to the past, present, and future, of human beings being human on the planet. Humanity is most definitely a work in progress. It is important to keep learning and to ask questions. I am continually in the process of developing wisdom, clarity, and discernment. I choose to align myself with love, light, grace, beauty, truth, magic, and humour as much as possible. I choose to be present, awake and in the now as much as possible and wherever I go. I really don’t want to miss a beat out of the extraordinary adventure that is life.”

The exhibition runs October 9 to October 31, 2018.
