Touch

Artists Carla Beerens and Rick Rogers are musing over the human figure, in new paintings at VASA’s Grandin Mall location.

Beerens’ study of Nefertiti reflects her amazement at how statues transform themselves into the beings they were modeled after. An unusual color palette uncovers the beauty and mystique of one of the world’s most beautiful women of the ancient world.

In Rogers’ Touch series, paintings begin as figures and are deconstructed into abstract shapes and textures. The acrylic gels provide a glass-like finish, and transparent pigments allow the viewer to visually peel back the top layers of paint.

This new work from both artists continues through March 31, at Grandin Park Plaza, 22 Sir Winston Churchill Avenue, St. Albert.

Tuesdays-Fridays 10-4 and Saturdays 10-3. Other times by chance or appointment.
