Robinson is an emerging artist from Burnaby who’s completing her bachelor of fine arts degree at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

As a gallery write-up notes, Liminal Home draws its inspiration from the domestic space of “home” – a place that has become more important than ever in a time of self-isolation and quarantine.

“In this exhibition, the familiar space is taken, twisted and made strange through the manipulation of imagery to produce new, unfamiliar environments to situate oneself in,” the write-up says. “Photos of household rooms are altered and transformed into a new reality.  Liminal Home lies on the threshold of the intangible – surreal-like spaces emerge from the very real and the very quotidian, and are made into the unrecognizable.”

Admission is free, and the gallery has COVID-19 guidelines in place to help keep visitors safe. Pre-bookings are encouraged. You can book an appointment by emailing info@burnabyartscouncil.org.

The gallery is at 6584 Deer Lake Ave. Check out all the details at www.burnabyartscouncil.org/events/liminal-home.
