Shan Hai Jing, literally translated as Collection of Mountains and Seas, is an ancient text on geography and mythology in China.
This exhibition was initiated by Holly Lee, who first started her series of photographs titled Shan Hai Jing in 2010. Inspired by the work of Fiona and Erik, Holly found many similarities in the mythology of their work, so she suggested that together they adopt Shan Hai Jing as a theme to create a body of new work to be shown together.
The Opening Reception is Saturday, 16 March, 2013, from 3-6 pm.
50 Gladstone Avenue
Gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 1-6 pm.
The exhibition runs thru April 28, 2013.

Fiona will be showing a selection of works created in the last ten years. The exhibition includes paintings and drawings from the series Bride of Gene 2002 and The Virtuous – Rise of the Matriarchy 2007. These works explore the elastic resiliency of female identity and the idea of traumatic memories living in the tissue of the body.
The show runs from February 7 through to March 9, 2013
Reception: Saturday February 9 from 4 to 8 PM

CHEEZ was originally a monthly drawing published in Canada’s Exclaim Magazine over a ten year period from 1992 to 2002. The work is currently available every week as part of Index G’s Monday ArtPost where Fiona continues drawing CHEEZ with the same numbering sequence.
A collection of the first one hundred strips was published as CHEEZ 100 by Pedlar Press in 2001.
