Music has power.
Music evokes emotion that brings back memories, and brings the feeling of being alive!
It can be so powerful that hearing a tune, long after the occurrence, can transport us back through time, re-connecting us to our most treasured memories. Throughout our lifetime, we expand our own personal soundtrack, connecting our stories and biggest life events to music.
Tina Struthers is a professional textile and visual artist, costume designer and cultural mediator who has been living and creating works of art in Québec since 2011.
She grew up in South Africa, a multicultural and multi-ethnic society with a richness in textures, colour and diversity that shaped her artistic interpretations. She constantly seeks to capture movement, or the element of change.
Immigrating to Canada in 2008, and locating to southern Quebec (Montreal area) in 2011, was a remarkable shift in redefining her artistic vision, allowing a new freedom in exploring large scale works, and the creation of public artworks.
Her career of 18 years includes exhibitions of her art, costume design for theatre and dance, commissioned public art installations and public art creation projects.
Recent exhibitions include: Selection for the International textile biennale in Belgium 201 , and in 2016 for the International textile triennale in Outaouais.
