Show runs April 12th to June 2nd
Please join UBC Master’s of Fine Arts student, Shea Allan-McCachen for the opening of a new mural show, entitled Dark Liquid, on Saturday April 12 from 8-11pm, at the Blackwater Café (280 Carrall Street – at Cordova).
The mammoth scale in which Shea renders her drawings allows for a dynamically drippy line. This effect only furthers the intense transformative process her on-site observations of objects, architecture and social interactions undergo with in the pages of her sketchbook, before being transposed onto the walls and floor of the café. Through a process of mirroring and tracing, various elements are abstracted and recombined in order to investigate the ways in which memory may be altered by desire, or obsession, even while we stand in the presence of the real.
Opening night will also feature musical performances by La La Boom Boom and Bluechild.
The show will run from April 12 to June 2, M-F 7-8, Sat 8-8, Sun 8-4.
