ROCK ART

Climbing - - THE APPROACH -

“Lately, I’ve been drawn to wood carv­ing and oil paint­ing, but I try not to limit my­self to any medium,” says Au­drey Halim, a 25-year-old vis­ual arts ma­jor at Emily Carr Univer­sity of Art + De­sign in Van­cou­ver, Canada. A na­tive of Co­quit­lam, Bri­tish Columbia, and climber of four years, Halim boul­ders at the Hive gyms and topropes at Climb Base5 in Van­cou­ver. The sport has crept into her art: “Climb­ing has in­flu­enced my art as an out­door theme, and as a way to keep the stoke high,” she says. When Halim got sick with an au­toim­mune dis­ease, she made two climb­ingth­emed paint­ings, one fea­tur­ing a sloth, the other a go­rilla. “My friends and fam­ily en­cour­aged me to make more, and it be­came a way to ex­plore the climb­ing and moun­tain themes, and dif­fer­ent medi­ums, styles, and tech­niques,” she says.
