Artworks by Lana Hovinga

 July 2 to September 27, 2019

This series of large-scale acrylic and ink paintings takes its inspiration from the natural world and is informed by the artist’s unique perspective as a landscape designer. Each new work examines a plant in bold colours. Our native Slipper Orchid, common Tiger Lily and even the humble Thistle take on a fresh focus when enlarged and seen close up. Lana lives and works in Kitchener.
