A Series of Mythological Narratives

by: Ashley Beerdat

Mythological Narratives is a series of paintings created through the process of searching. Ashley believes we are all searching for something meaningful but often, we’re not sure about what that “something” is. Ashley treats each painting as an individual story that unfolds when the viewer seeks to find meaning. While the work explores concepts of climate change, evolution, dreams, and the environment, these mythical worlds also hold hidden stories for the viewer to uncover.

About Ashley Beerdat

Ashley Beerdat is an emerging artist of Guyanese descent who grew up in Brampton, Ontario. Ashley uses painting as a creative outlet to narrate mythical stories based on her childhood, dreams, and life experiences. The narratives do not follow a specific tale – rather, Ashley treats each painting as an expedition and takes bits of information from each in search of hidden meaning. Ashley’s work toys with the line between imagination and reality.
