We have known each other since the early ’90’s when we shared a studio at 1000 Parker St. in Vancouver, when there was no heat or hot water, you had to figure out your own electrical and the fire escape was a rope next to the window! We were recent graduates, Anne with an honours diploma from ECAD and Louise with a masters from UBC, eager to be part of a supportive artistic environment, to find simpatico with fellow artists across disciplines.
Over the years Anne has taught at two universities, been to the Banff centre twice and has received two Canada Council grants. Louise has attended the Emma Lake artists workshop, been to the Banff centre, and most recently completed a residency at Arteles in Finland.
Even though life has taken us to different parts of Canada we have stayed in touch. Recently Louise’s ‘hai’ lights on the road project inspired Anne to begin her own pilgrimage. When she called Louise to ask if she would assist with her ‘Heal’ project in Iceland, and consider bringing ‘hai’ lights along, ‘Heal’ and ‘hai’ lights became our next project.
So far our research has shown us that this has the possibility of being amazing on so many levels AND that the expenses are going to be substantial. We are crowdfunding to help us offset some of those expenses.
Over the next 4 months we will be accepting donations in exchange for photographs and art work that we will be creating while in Iceland.
The work we are proposing to create comes from a desire to share our unique visions with humanity, which we explained in the video above.
Support from you will help us bring these visions to life – manifestations of hope and light – in a part of the world where the environment reminds us of the beauty, fragility and temporal nature of everything.
Our deepest gratitude for whatever you can contribute towards our projects.
Anne and Louise
