We stumbled across an amazing exhibition of Bill Featherston's paintings at the Art Gallery of the South Okanagan. Apparently this BC artist is 80 years old and seriously pissed off in a punk-rock sort of stick-it-to-the-man way. The present, past and future depicted in these paintings is dark and intense and bleak, like they'd fit into the angriest issue of Adbusters.
I thought it was incredible, powerful stuff, but Ivy walked into the gallery ahead of me, promptly turned on her heal and marched straight out saying that the paintings made her "feel trapped". She didn't want to go back in either.
