Flow is a collection of abstract paintings expressing the constantly changing energies of geo-organic life. In this exhibition, Strayer seeks to capture the dynamic energies of land, sea, and sky, evoking landscapes, seascapes, clouds, and space. Painted on Saturna Island, this body of work is a reminder of the shifting currents and the delicate balance of geo-organic life. Strayer’s paintings are composed of brilliant and subtle colours, cellular-like structures and lace-like detail which are created by her process of pouring paint in layers.
Strayer practices between Vancouver and Saturna Island, and has exhibited in solo and group shows widely across Vancouver, Saturna Island, and the Lower Mainland, as well as exhibited in Italy and the USA.
