Ebb & Flow (SAQA Global Exhibition)

Many things in life and history demonstrate recurring patterns of growth and decline. From movements in history to the phases of our lives, the seasons, the position of the stars and planets, tides, conversations, even the progression of a piece of music or literature. Change is a constant, and this exhibition explores how it affects all different aspects of our lives.

About the Juror

The art of Linda Colsh examines humanist themes -- aspects of growing old in her figurative series, as well as connections between natural spaces and populated, constructed places in her nature-inspired series. Colsh’s imagery and minimal palette is known worldwide and her artwork is in collections in Europe, Asia and America. Honors include the European Quilt Triennial first prize and Nihon Vogue’s Quilts Japan Prize.
