1969-12-31 11:00:00 1969-12-31 18:00:00 America/Vancouver 'Beyond the Sea' by Yuliya McMahon at the Alternator On view at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is local artist Yuliya McMahon with a series of colourful, fantastical pieces titled 'Beyond the Sea'. Throughout her career, McMahon has been involved with a variety of artistic endeavours, most notably, her career as an animator for various studios such as Disney and DreamWorks. Inspired by her time working in animation for over 15 years, McMahon takes on a playful, illustrative approach towards her artistic practice. In 'Beyond the Sea', McMahon depicts a series of characters inspired by tropical plants, animals, and colours. She creates an underwater dream world, populated by pin-up mermaids, ultra-hip, fez-wearing octopuses and a wild assortment of their blowfish friends, each depicted with unique and individual personalities. This ongoing series is influenced by the colours of nature and the rich, unique sub-sea world. McMahon is fascinated by the myriad shades of blue of the undersea world and imagines what lies beneath the ocean, allowing this curiosity to fuel her imaginative world. With 'Beyond the Sea', McMahon aims to explore her interest in the fantastical and bring a smile to someone's face. 'Beyond the Sea' will be on view in the Members’ Gallery of the Alternator from January 15 to February 5, 2022. The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is open Tuesday to Saturday 11am - 4pm.
