Story: I dug my toes into the sand exactly where dry hot met cool damp. As the welcomed coolness radiated up my feet I couldn’t help but feel exactly in the right place. I sat back, enjoying the moisture building up around my feet while hypnotized by the deepest blue waters. The definition of “Unearth” is to discover something hidden, lost or secret by digging, or turning up. In that moment, not only the beach was being unearthed by my happy toes – but also a feeling of utter relief that had been hidden for far too long.

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."
