Lyndia Terre: I went into the large space

Gage Gallery
Victoria BC – May 12-30, 2015

Lyndia Terre is a photographer, printmaker, poet and painter, originally from Montreal and currently living in Victoria. In this show, she exhibits a series of photographs, drawings and poems, and debuts an art book made up of the same material. Created during Terre’s 2014 artist residency at the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific (the first such residency for the HCP), the series includes colour photographs and a corresponding selection of delicate line drawings in graphite.

The collection emphasizes all the small and delightful details to be discovered within a large gardenscape: the curve of a garden stone, the intricacy of a rose, and the tendrils curling atop a cattail are beautifully illustrated. The drawings in particular are contemplative and surprising, echoing the best experiences one can have while exploring a garden.

The natural world, whether found in the wild or in the garden, is a great passion for Terre, and this exhibition and book are the latest of several similar projects for her. As Robin Laurence, a well-known arts writer, says in an essay for the book, Terre has been “exploring, responding to and reflecting upon aspects of the natural world” for several years, and making “extensive visits to dedicated conservation areas in Canada and the United States.”
