“Cascade” is often associated with waterfalls or streams. But it’s also defined as “a process whereby something is successively passed on.” It could be information, knowledge, tradition, genetics or even a totally fictional story. In any case, including water, it happily bounces forward effortlessly and continuously.

SUPPORT CALGARY ARTISTS BY PURCHASING LOCAL, ORIGINAL ART.
JP Whiting is a emerging abstract artist based in Calgary, Alberta. She uses a concoction of glycol ether, isopropyl alcohol and alcohol ink as her medium. Her inks are poured on solid art boards and controlled by a heat gun and/or gravity by tilting the board. JP Whiting's method is as unique as it is vibrant.
"When left in the hands of gravity and chemical reaction, ink can perform an incredibly beautiful dance. For me, this capture parallels a photo of a galaxy, or a cut geode, maybe a view of riverbanks or coral reefs from outer space. There is a familiarity that even in my studio, the same universal laws and visual language are at play."
