“visions of sugarplums danced in their heads…”
Just in time for the post-holiday New Year resolution season, Debbie.lee Miszaniec presents a lush abundance of Dutch baroque-inspired still-life paintings of ‘forbidden foods’ in the Okotoks Art Gallery. The exhibition focuses on the psychological struggle between the body’s needs and the mind’s direction when pursuing weight loss. A soft sculpture, tortured by these sweet sights, sits caught in the struggle between nature and diet culture.
Debbie.lee Miszaniec is an Alberta artist working in Calgary. She holds a BFA (2008) from the Alberta University of the Arts. Her paintings draw from her observations of the human experience, history and society as well as her own experience as a working-class Western female artist.
