Just in time for summer, Vision Gallery presents À LA MODE, paintings by Caroline Estelle. These paintings prompt the viewer to consider their own preconceived notions of representations of the human body. They are a reminder that summertime should be a time of leisure without judgement, and that all bodies are swimwear bodies.

By directing and guiding a mixture of Sumi ink and water, Sapira Cheuk creates androgynous figures that appear to move weightlessly across a stark white backdrop. For this exhibition, Cheuk is exploring how individuals cope mentally and physically with change or trauma and what remains after. Through her work, she meditatively attempts to control the uncontrollable. While we may never be able to avoid these external forces, we can, like the artist’s hand, control how they leave their mark on the paper of our lives.

Within the swirl and frenzy of life, there are ephemeral moments that remind us of our inner beauty, our strength, our fragility, earth’s wonder, and the cycle of life and decay. Remnants of debris on a pathway, a faded color on a crumbling wall, a glimpse of light and shape in a darkened space, an unexpected texture, a footprint in sand. Being mindful of these moments and capturing them reminds us of the connections that live eternally beyond us.
