Location: VanDusen Botanical Garden
Vancouver Coast & MtsCraft Council of BC in partnership with the VanDusen Botanical Garden Association are hosting three lectures this fall to celebrate Craft Year 2015. These lectures feature craft artists discussing how their work has been inspired by the shapes, the ethos and/or the products of the botanical world. Each evening will include an opportunity for those in attendance to interact with the artists and their work.
This lecture series is a fundraiser for the educational programs of the Craft Council and the VanDusen Botanical Garden Assoication.
October’s Lecture: Botanically Inspired
Three artists from the Botanically Inspired exhibition (on view at VanDusen all through October) will discuss how the garden and all its riches – insects, flowers, weeds and compost – have inspired their artistic practice.
When: October 27, 7-9 PM
Where: VanDusen Botanical Garden (5151 Oak Street, Vancouver)
CCBC or VBGA members: $20 for each lecture each or 3/$50
Non-members: $25 each lecture or 3/$65

Larissa Blokhuis' current body of work is an imagining of what the world will look like if it becomes as hot as it has been in the pre-historic past. The concept for each piece begins with studying depictions of ancient plant and animal life, and visualising something similarly strange yet beautiful. Tropical plants can reach immense proportions, while arctic plants are often compact and hardy. As such, Larissa plays with scale, making comparatively large versions of life forms that would be tiny in today's nature systems, and vice versa. She is always looking for pattern, repetition, and contrast, and when she finds these elements they often become the nucleus of an idea for her art.
