Where is the meeting point between thought and production; between what the eye sees and what the hand makes; and how does the overlap of thought and importance of place carry through to its presentation? These and other questions are what have been propelling Lynda Gammon to make art.
Studio Practice: Meditation Practice bridges Gammon’s artistic concerns through installations that incorporate her long-standing use of photography with a renewed exploration of ceramics, inspired by Buddhist practices of meditation. “Over the past several decades, I have considered ideas of the studio through the disciplines of sculpture, assemblage, and photography. My work is positioned between the flat illusionistic space of photography and the volumetric physical space of sculpture.” states the artist.

In this exhibition by Victoria arts community stalwart, Lynda Gammon, the emphasis is on process through a variety of media underscoring an important shift in her focus from studio as subject to the practice itself.
A series of events, including a workshop by Jim Sacamano of the Shambala Centre will take place throughout the exhibit in order to activate the VAC space.

Lynda Gammon is a contemporary artist whose work considers ideas of space and inhabitation through the disciplines of photography, sculpture, performance, and assemblage. She is an Associate Professor Emeritus in the Visual Arts Department at the University of Victoria where she has taught for over thirty years and is a member of the Royal Academy of Arts. Gammon’s work has been exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally over the past four decades. In 2004 she established flask, an artist press dedicated to the production and dissemination of books by artists and writers. The artist acknowledges the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council for their support in the creation of the works for this exhibition. | lyndagammon.ca
