Splitting the Tiffany Charity from the exhibition What Chance Allows
Large views of fragments of fishing vessels and baiting tables.
The work concerns documenting and recording fragments of an Atlantic Canadian fishing community on the South Shore and the material culture of the fishing industry which is eroding along with the calamity of the fishery. Making visible that which is easily overlooked.
I am preparing an inventory of functional items, large and small, used in the resource-based industry of the fishery. Combined with this slightly didactic approach, I am exploring an expressive means of painting to heighten the drama of what is being acted out on the oceans.
