Life’s a Chessboard

April 4 – 27, 2024

Artist Paige Anderson presents a collection of oil paintings as her first solo exhibition at Gallery 110 titled Life’s a Chessboard, inviting witnesses to embark on a journey through the intricate landscape of human experience, where the game of life unfolds amidst tribulations, valleys, and mountains.

Life, much like a chessboard, presents us with challenges beyond our control, where every move we make shapes the narrative of our existence. Through the strokes of paint on canvas, Anderson invites guests to dive into the complexities of a metaphorical chess game, where each piece symbolizes a moment, a decision, or a circumstance that influences our path.

Amidst the uncertainties and trials, there exists a profound truth: it is in life’s little moments of joy, the fleeting instances of happiness, that we find solace and resilience. Anderson encourages the discovery of beauty in the mundane and the significance in the seemingly insignificant, for it is these moments that illuminate the journey and lend meaning to our existence.

Each piece in Life’s a Chessboard is a reflection of Anderson’s own experiences, emotions, and contemplations. However, she invites exploration through our own lens, to find resonance and interpretation that speaks to everyone’s unique narrative. Art, after all, is a mirror through which we glimpse our innermost thoughts and feelings, a catalyst for introspection and connection.

To those who grace these walls with their presence, Anderson extends her gratitude. “May Life’s a Chessboard serve as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, a celebration of life’s intricate tapestry, and a reminder to cherish the little moments that imbue our journey with meaning.”

Life’s a Chessboard will be on display at Gallery 110 from April 4 – 27, 2024. Gallery hours are Thursday – Saturday from 12pm – 5pm and by appointment. Please join us for the First Thursday Art Walk on April 4, 2024 from 12-8pm.
