Margo Cooper presents: BRAIN DANCE: Going off the Ploughed Track
at the Gage Gallery Sept 25 - Oct 6.
Opening Friday Sept 28, 5-7pm.
Q&A Sunday Sept 30, 1-4pm at Gage Gallery, 2031 Oak Bay Ave.
The original meaning of delirium was “going off the ploughed track”, a Roman medical term for madness. Brain Dance explores Cooper’s mental and emotional responses to an emergency surgery and period of recovery.
The exhibition’s 15 acrylic on cradled wood panel works were completed between March and July 2018. “The process of painting assisted my recovery,” she says. “a rebalancing of mind and body after my brush with death”. http://www.artopenings.ca/margo-cooper.html
