Details

Story: Most people know the flower “foxglove”. the name itself is derived from a legend that says the evil Fairies gave a fox the flower petals to put on his toes so that he could rob the chicken house without being heard – thus the name “fox glove.” I, however, prefer to think of a pair of pink gloves that a tastefully elegant fox would wear to her rabbit friend’s garden tea party. Mouse and Squirrel would be there, too and Mole would bring the shortbread.

JP Whiting (0 reviews)

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."
