by Jill Thomson, Darcia Parada and Owen Brierley
November 22nd, 2013
This three way collaboration features the work of Jill Thomson,visual artist, Darcia Parada,a multi disciplinary artist, and director of Mercury Opera and Owen Brierley of Guru Digital Arts. Together they are creating a living painting from an existing work that features an Edmonton historical cityscape of heritage buildings, from the perspective of an alley way, paired with new visual and auditiory projection elements, The painting, inspired by the historic buildings along Jasper Avenue east of 97th Street, just blocks away from the Boyle Street Community League will grow and shift with the audio ambiance that will incorporate recorded street sounds and operatic performances, highlighting the passage of time past to present. In blending the eternal harmonies of opera, this tri-partite collaboration will celebrate the joy of urban living.
