All are invited to Arlink Canada and Sotheby's Institute of Art’s closing party, February 25th, for the exhibition Takane no Hana, featuring Vancouver-based artist Lauren Brevner. This exhibition showcases visually striking female portraits that reflects the artist’s mixed-heritage, as well as her take on the cultural and contemporary motifs of the 21st century.
"Takane no Hana" is a Japanese idiom that roughly translates to "Flower on a high peak." It is meant to convey a pure and melancholic longing when admiring beauty from afar. Lauren's portraits embody a desired, pursued, yet indefinable muse. These works hope to invoke an emotional connection between the subjects and the viewer.
