Eden Veaudry is a Victoria, British Columbia based cross-disciplinary artist who creates optimistic art that addresses
her experiences in the daily dream landscape while inspiring the viewer with a greater curiosity and
appreciation of the strange, organic forms that make up the everyday world.

For this exhibition she is interested in carving the landscape down to its roots; whittling it down to a juxtaposition of dreamlike, organic forms and abstracted northern imagery. On her daily walks along the shoreline she collects an assortment of souvenirs, which she carries home to use as models for her crocheted 'drawings'. Driftwood, seashells, seaweed, and stones lose their original connotations as they are blown up, re-modelled out of wool, and imagined as armour to protect the human body.Link
