Two new exhibits are at the Campbell River Art Gallery .

Artist Linda Findlay, who spoke at the gallery last week,takes the minutiae of life seriously. She goes all the way to the microscopic for her subject matter.

“When I was first introduced to images from the electron microscope I was captivated by the delicate and complex beauty of single cell life,” she says. When news stories and images of virulent bacteria and viruses went public during the SARS outbreak, Findlay was captivated by the dichotomy between image and reality.

These magnified images of tiny, delicately beautiful life forms revealed organisms that were tenacious and deadly. She has embraced this dichotomy in Passive Aggressive a collection of work that provides a visual metaphor for the unseen in our lives (April 15 – May 20).

Information System reveals Ontario artist Marijo Swick’s explorations of the relationships between science, faith, destiny and choice.

Her multi-media paintings will be on exhibit in the Discovery Gallery (April 15 to July 1).

Swick experiments with combinations of digital painting, conventional drawing and painting, graphic design, mixed media, found objects and printed text. The identities of science and faith, are often seen in opposition, but Swick unites them in her paintings.

In all her work, Swick’s use of multiple media represents how the complex coding of DNA and the unique variety human experience creates identity.
