David Young and Frances Solar at the District Library Gallery

David Young
David’s photography is influenced by the Zen belief that beauty and meaning are to be found in everyday life. His favorite photography subjects are reflections, driftwood, rock faces and Arbutus bark. “I do not have to go looking for spectacular scenery; a world of beauty is always just beyond my doorstep,” says David of his work.

David spent his childhood in Sierra Leone, West Africa where he developed a strong love of nature. At the age of 12 he acquired his first camera and has been developing an eye for compositions, textures and colours within natural elements ever since.

Frances Solar
Frances has been a traditional weaver and textile artist for many years. She began working with copper as the varieties of color are warm and attractive. Copper wire is flexible and easily manipulated and it can be shaped into a sculptural form that has no real function besides being something beautiful. “I find the improvised play of the masculine materials with the traditional feminine techniques….to be endlessly entertaining and challenging. It is very satisfying to transcend the inherent qualities of metallic materials often associated with weight and rigidity and create forms that are sensual and flowing,” Frances says of her work.
