Sylvie Ringer

In her drawings, Sylvie Ringer moves between day-to-day life and dreams, the formed and the formless, between memory and imaginative power. The starting point for her book Crab, Rock, Stick, Loss was a stay of several years on Malcolm Island, to the north of Vancouver Island. Her drawings on paper and canvas were created in direct and intuitive communication with nature. In her haunting pictorial worlds, elements from history and legends, historical and mythological sites as well as unspoiled nature become fantastical motifs, metaphors, and symbols.
