※日本語は下です。/ Japanese translation follows.

“No Hard Feelings” is the artist’s love letter to Japan’s seaside. Inspired by her time along the coasts, the work softly speaks in the language of the sea and comes into form with the land. Each landscape unfolds with the transitional conversations between the two elements, balancing and breaking onto each other to create safe spaces to house all that we feel.

※ Opening: Saturday, September 15, 12-5 PM (part of PW’s September Art x Music Weekend)

“No Hard Feelings”
とは作家の日本の海沿いに向けて思いを込めたラブレター。日本の海岸で過ごした時間にインスピレーションをうけた作品は、海の言葉で優しく語りかけ、しだいに陸と一体になっていくかのよう。海と陸が調和し合い、ぶつかり合いながら、次第に私たちが感じること全てを包み込む穏やかな場を創り出すうつろいを表しています。

Location: Possible Worlds (708G Somerset Street West, Chinatown, Ottawa)
Hours: Wednesday 6-9 PM, Saturdays + Sundays 12-5 PM
