The artist’s inspiration comes from everything in her surroundings. Some pieces are from particular emotions which she is experiencing at the time and others are from the past. One particular piece entitled “Secret Lives” is created from a cupboard which she found in her father’s garage which upon inspection was discovered had a hidden drawer holding a bank account book showing withdrawals of a consistent and suspicious nature. It is in the artist’s nature to be resilient and adapt to her surroundings.
She has always utilized whatever materials are available to her, not always having the means to buy canvas and paints of the professional ilk. One of her paintings was created on an old dog kennel door, the scratches from the previous clientele, provided an interesting background to the paint and shards of glass which were added.
Texture and movement are important in her process. The floor of her old studio is a testament of just how violently paint and material were thrown about to create her piece entitled “Jazz Man”. The artist manipulates the paint with objects other than a brush, sometimes using a blow torch to create the desired effect. The piece titled “Savannah Pond” almost caused a fire in her garage (thankfully it was midwinter and snow and some furious shoveling came to the rescue)
Alix McLachlan began her artistic career at an early age – beginning with taking oil painting classes with her mother in the early seventies. After a “brief” hiatus caused by criticism from an old art teacher in high school, she started painting seriously again in 2006 when she encountered The Edge Gallery and began her career anew. Raising her daughter Chloe singlehandedly while providing creature comforts and “old school” guidance the artist has emerged a full grown human being and her only regret is that her mother, Peggy, isn’t with her today to share her joy.

SYNONYM’S FIRST EVER FUNDRAISER!

We will be raising funds to employ local & visiting contemporary artists to create gigantic public art pieces focused in the North End, West Broadway & Osborne Village to create safer spaces and enhance the neighbourhood at large. These projects will not only employ contemporary artists but create mentorship roles to younger artists, employ artists through the Red Road Lodge under mentorship through Kenneth Lavallee and finally bringing in National artists to put Winnipeg on the street art map.

DANCE PARTY! DJ FESTIVAL VIBES WITH:
THE VINYL SALON// JOM JOM CLUB// ON THE ONE COLLECTIVE// PRESTIGIOUS DEVIANTS// A.O.K.S & ZUKI //FRASIER, CO-OP & HUNNICUT

COHESIVE DEVICES EXHIBITION LAUNCH:
Feat. Artists Graham Wiebe, Reza Resai & The Travelling Sign Painters
An art exhibiton using the street art medium of wheat paste in combination with fine art photographers and text works to create COHESIVE DEVICES.

Reza Rezai’s sparsely populated, vivid landscapes, and Graham Wiebe’s candid glimpses into his life are bound together not only by the thematic concept of the cohesive device, but literally, as well, by the wheatpaste that adheres these works to the wall.

With Cohesive Devices, Synonym wants to continue the dialogue about contemporary art and its place in our streets. After this show has run its course, the panels on which these works are wheatpasted will be re-installed outdoors, in their natural habitat, to start a new life, subject to the elements, other street artists, and the imagination of a whole new public viewership.

Tickets are 15$
