"Double Vision – Morphos Inquiry" January 5 to February 14, 2010, Numen Gallery.
Vancouver’s Numen Gallery will bring together two masters of complex textile art for the show Double Vision – Morphos Inquiry January 5 to February 14. Vancouver-based mixed media artist Patricia Chauncey, and London-based artist Hilary Young have created an installation inspired by the complex botany and scientific inquiry found in the work of A.S. Byatt, Charles Darwin, Carl Jung, and Vladimir Nabokov. Their influences — Victorian and Edwardian imagery, curio cabinets and fossils — can be clearly seen in their three-dimensional, highly technical textile works.
