Artspace on the Mezzanine Bowmanville Branch of the Clarington Public Library
Through July, Anastasia Tiller’s Tapestry of Sentiment is featured at ‘Artspace on the Mezzanine’ at the Bowmanville branch of the Clarington Public Library. Moving to Canada eight years ago from Moscow where she earned her Masters Degree in International Commercial Law, Tiller most enjoys experimenting with different mediums, different textures and different styles. Mixed media, such as her woven images featured at ‘Artspace on the Mezzanine’ wherein she weaves artefacts from her many travels, allow her freedom of expression, more room to be inventive and to be truthful in her art. Tiller writes in her artist’s statement: “Modern Art is my inspiration. I feel that in this century, borders dividing different art forms are broken. More often, you could see merging and mixture of different art forms. We are in this exciting age of complete freedom of expression where everything is possible…. Modern Art is a fiesta of ideas. The age of technology influenced art immensely [and] I am extremely curious to see what lies ahead and am glad to have such a large spectrum of sources available to me to create art.” The exhibition runs from July 1 to July 31.
