Slow down, observe, relax.

Take time to slow down and deeply observe works in the exhibition Ann Clarke: A Life in Motion. Guided by Agnes docents, this contemplation practice allows for relaxation and new insights.
At Deep Looking, we aim to facilitate conversations around artworks shaped by participants’ unique perspectives, rather than promoting a singular reading. We ask that participants come with a willingness to listen, share and collaborate.
Clarke’s record is significant, and she continues to paint today. This first exhibition retrospective provides opportunity to look back at Clarke’s body of work and to reflect on her distinctive contributions to the field, as one of Canada’s leading abstract painters for the last half century.
