“More Than Meets the Eye” explores portraits of human beings through which hidden emotions come to the surface.
Fivi Lu studied Fine Arts and Visual Arts in China and in Canada. She has held several exhibits in Ottawa since she moved here in 2014. Fivi uses different styles and subjects in her paintings. They are not associated with one particular form or topic. Fivi’s personal need for adventure constantly leads her to unknown paths. This tendency seems to energize her motivation as well as the desire to present and research all aspects of a subject. Thus, she often sees a surprise in the final product of her own work. According to Fivi, she is satisfied when her work teaches her something new, but her greatest pleasure and sense of purpose come from meeting others who can experience the unexpected through her work.
Mia Kin started painting with Fivi since spring 2018. Through Fivi’s intuitive teaching method, Mia gradually uncovered her passion in expressing herself in paintings. Mia has a graduate degree in Economics and she is a senior data analyst in her day-to-day job. Her analytical background equips her with strong observations and the ability to de-contextualize, to see beyond the distractions and to reconstruct.
We have formed a tight bond through teaching, learning, and exploring ideas together. This series is our way to learn about ourselves and to share feelings with others who may identify with similar joys or sorrows.
