Breathe deep. Take a break from hectic city life.
Throughout May and June 2017, the 'B I G S K Y' exhibit by Darrel Kanyok is on display at The Sunroom at Central Library.
In a hurried world that surrounds us, Darrel Kanyok's work singles out the elements in nature that compel us to stop and take notice. This focus changes our perspective, if only for a brief moment, perhaps allowing us to become subconsciously humbled by the beauty and the simplicity of what we see, feel and think. Reflecting on the inspiration he draws by the land or seascape around him and the cloudscape above, Darrel says:
"As I walk noticing the rich and vibrant colours of the earth, the blue watered horizon that seems endless and the soft architectural formation of the clouds, my heart soars and my inspiration is created. It is my deep desire to represent this beautiful imagery that I have experienced in Nova Scotia, through my work and to share my interpretation of it."
