Details

Story: This piece is inspired by the iconic Pyramid Mountain in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. When I lived in Jasper, one of my favourite things to do was to go for runs listening to my favourite DJ at the time, taking in the grandeaur of the local mountains. Pyramid Mountain is a mountain all the locals know well and is one of my favourites. It was named by James Hector in 1859 due to its appearance from the Athabasca River valley on the eastern side of the peak.

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."
