ARTS Nova Scotia "Creation Grant" awarded in 2022

I recently received the very good news that I have been awarded an Arts NS “Creation Grant”, which will help fund the creation of my next series of paintings entitled “Ruptured Landscapes”. 

Ten paintings will be created between April 1st and Nov. 1st, 2022, exploring the relationships between humans and the fragile environment we live in, a world threatened by systematic disintegration and devastation. 

Environmental concerns are a focus in my current practice. My most recent paintings explore and speak to climate and environmental change, particularly on oceans and shorelines: the sea level is rising, waters are warming, storms are intensifying, lives and communities are at risk. 

Conjured partly from memory, partly from my own photo references, the figures in my paintings uneasily inhabit places that I have explored in the past and present, with a focus on their relationship to bodies of water. 

Many thanks to Arts NS for this grant!
