Issue 8 – Meaning

For issue 8, we asked artists to look for meaning: underlying, hidden, obvious, secret and everything in between. And, as always, they wowed us. The search for meaning is central to the work of so many artists and we think you’ll love the varied approaches to and interpretations of this quarter’s theme.

From the vibrant frescoes of Quin de la Mer to the uncomfortable perspective of Robert Sach’s lense to the humour that asks larger questions about the meaning of life of  Suchoon Mo, the pieces this quarter represent a diverse group of artists searching for meaning through creation. We think the work will both make you question meaning and give you some answers. Some may make you uncomfortable, some make you laugh and some a little of both, and we think all of this will add a little meaning to your day.

Below, you’ll find a list of our included artists so you can explore this issue in any way that you choose.
