Exhibition features Juss Kaur’s Pointillism artwork which critically explores spirituality and reframes the identities and experiences of South Asians who celebrate Vaisaikhi.

Juss Kaur’s Unfolding Consciousness” exhibition opening reception takes place on Friday, April 17, 2015 6-9pm Beaumont Studios at 316 West 5th Vancouver, BC. The exhibit is timely – with Vaisaikhi occurring only a few days before the opening and two Nagar Kirtans in the Lower Mainland which celebrate the founding of the Sikh community known as the Khalsa.

“The ultimate goal I wish to accomplish is to hint at the illusionary nature of our world, while at the same time subtly implying that the universal spirit surrounds us,” notes Kaur. Juss Kaur’s exhibit critically explores spirituality and reframes the identities and experiences of South Asians who celebrate Vaisaikhi.

Each of her awe-inspiring paintings contain up to 20,000 Wahegurus, depending on their respective size. Her work is experimental and engages viewers in a critical discussion that offers new perspectives on the contemporary world.

The Kenyan-born artist holds a Doctor of Philosophy from Oxford University and has been residing in Montreal, Quebec for over thirty years. The artist never explicitly explains the meaning of her distinctive paintings, as she prefers to leave audiences in a sense of wonder arriving at their own conclusions.

Juss Kaur’s artwork invites viewers to interpret the particle nature of our Universe portrayed through vibrant colours with a style that has its origins in Pointillism. This technique uses a dot pattern to create the composition of an image.

Her artwork will continue to be showcased April 18-23th, 2015 from 11am- 6pm (daily) at The Beaumont Studio, located at 316 West 5th Vancouver, BC. To attend the Opening Reception, organizers request
