Two Window Project is proud to present its first exhibition in the UK with gallery artists Ernesto Canovas from Barcelona and Elisabeth Belliveau of Vancouver.
Ernesto Canovas with his BFA/painting from Edinburgh College of Art and is currently in the MFA program of the Slade School in London, has recently won top awards from both the Catlin Group and the Stevenson Award from the Royal Scottish Academy. He will be presenting his unique mixed media photos on wood from the Conejera Series, part human, part rabbit creatures which create fantastic images that transport the spectator to a parallel fantasy world where testing with embryos went wrong, Sputnik generation lands in Wonderland.
Elisabeth Belliveau with her BFA from Alberta College/sculpture and MFA from Concordia University, Montréal in fibers will show her embroidery portraits of the ladies of Coronation Street in a style that gracefully melds the old world art of needlework with pop culture imagery of the UK's long running TV soap. Sincerity and a touch of humor blend seamlessly in these fiber snapshots. She has recently exhibited in the Textile Museum of Canada in Toronto, and galleries in Canada, EU and Cuba. Elisabeth has also been honored for her stop motion short animation films.
