Reverie

Rowena Katigbak

February 23 – April 27, 2019

Opening Reception Saturday February 23rd 5 – 8 pm

Rowena Katigbak’s Reverie is about the connection and interaction between spirituality and the environment. Inspired by her walks around Toronto Island, each painting delves into concepts of liminality and revelation.

“My walks are a very important part of my spiritual journey. They aren’t about finding big life altering revelations. They’re about the small revelations, glimpses of beauty, and steadfastness that add up to profound and prolonged changes. These moments reaffirm my faith that I contain this glory within. We all contain this splendor and strength.”

– Rowena Katigbak

These circular paintings celebrate the moments before wonder takes hold; when the breath is held just before its release; when the clouds shift and the light breaks through; when you touch the light within.

High Flyer (Reserved)
High Flyer (Reserved)

Size: 5.5” l. x 28” h. x 5.5” w.

Materials: Wood, mixed media, upcycled parts, magic

This piece was exhibited at the Witchfest North Grimoires: Storytelling & Witchcraft Art Exhibition (Beaver Hall Gallery, Toronto, ON) from October 24-29, 2018.

It’s part of a series that I’m working on called Progress. This series will be exhibited at the Neilson Park Creative Centre from Dec. 4-21, 2019.

Here’s a brief excerpt from my project description.

“Progress uses interactive kinetic sculptures based on automatons and toys to engage viewers. Their perspectives shift from spectator to participant. They are controlling the mechanism which drives the work. They are becoming empowered through play. For example, my sculpture “High Flyer,” from this series, involves turning a crank to make a witch fly around small patriarchal figures stuck on stone monuments. She is whimsical, free and gleeful as she swirls above them while they remain fixed in place. She is urging us to take our power back, to rise above and laugh at the absurdity of antiquated patriarchal thinking.

[…] I love seeing participants’ delight when they identify the toy parts and play with them. And, they see how these parts have been given new lives within my sculptures. These works honour the past while using this knowledge to lift us into the future with hope, joy and love.”

This painting is part of my Arctic Flow Series which seeks to highlight the beauty of our glaciers, issues of climate change, and the need for ocean conservation. The title, Polynya, refers to a stretch of open water surrounded by ice. It's essentially an oasis of water for Arctic creatures such as the eider ducks who live in the Arctic all year round. Eider ducks depend on these open water holes to access sea urchins and mussels in the frigid waters during winter months.
