The Broadbent Sisters with The Beaches: ‘Rising Venus’ includes a psychedelic explosion of fluorescent rocks with a holographic goddess in the centre, whose aura changes colour with the viewers' mood. Reminiscent of Botticelli’s famous painting, ‘Birth of Venus’, the young woman takes back the essence of rock and roll.
The Broadbent Sisters are multidisciplinary artists based in Toronto. Their unfolding practice, ‘Clearing Spaces,’ examines themes of meditation, telepathy, eco-feminism, and pop spirituality.
"Strongly connected, their multidisciplinary and meditative approach to art creates a fresh and unique experience for the community."
Rose and Joy Broadbent’s process plays on the unconscious resonances in and among images, acknowledging that there's a crucial aspect of seeing that only hidden parts of our minds see—what Walter Benjamin calls the 'optical unconscious.’
It has become a central concern in their practice to investigate and experiment with non-verbal communication and try to strengthen their muscles of intuition, and, by doing so, create work that is an example of trust and generosity.
The Broadbent Sisters' work is playful yet substantial…their bond as sisters and artists is one that is truly sacred and divine.”
