The Circle of Life. Annabel Stanley



Sat, Sep 4th, 2021 to Sun, Sep 11th, 2022


10:00 am to 5:00 pm


In the Gallery’s Rotary Courtyard Annabel Stanley explores the form of the circle, how it shapes our environment, and is reflected in the flora and fauna that surround us.

This site-specific installation was inspired by her recent discovery of sacred geometry (which examines the intersection of math, architecture, and nature) in addition to the work of influential artist Alexander Liberman and his reflection on the circle.

Visitors will encounter various sculptures woven from natural fibres such as grasses, dogwood, alder, willow, moss, and grape vines – including an oversized bee skep that pays tribute to the humble bee which pollinates our food crops. The Circle of Life will feature subtle changes introduced throughout the year that reflect the cycle of the seasons.

Stanley sources her materials throughout the Okanagan Valley and from her vineyard in West Kelowna. She trained in Willow Sculpture with artist Julieann Worrall Hood in Wiltshire, England and has exhibited extensively in British Columbia and New Zealand.
