In her recent work, contemporary artist Roberta Pyx Sutherland explores themes of repetition and repeating motifs (circles, spirals, arcs, labyrinths) to form patterns that have deep ancient and spiritual roots. Her creative intention is always to 'make interconnectedness visible'.
Roberta divides her time between her studios in Victoria and Hornby Island. She has studied and exhibited locally and internationally, and her work is found in collections across Canada and in Europe.
"The spontaneous gesture of a circle is created again and again following the rhythm of the breath. I witness unintentional patterns appear within seeming randomness. Until recently I was sure this was connected to zen practice - to the present moment. Yet perhaps the repeating rings and circles symbolize particles and quantum physics, simultaneously referring to past, present and future."
