It brings me great pleasure to share this museum group exhibition. My very first museum exhibition starting September 28 to November 29, 2022. As a juried selected artist, I was asked to choose one of Peter Rozon’s photos and from that photo create a project idea.
“The theme chosen for this call for submissions: Industrial visions based on the photographs of Peter Rozon. The artist will have to create a work inspired by the Peter Rozon collection, a photographer-reporter known to have worked in the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield region from the 1950s to the 1970s. The artist will choose the photo he prefers among those with an industrial theme selected by the MUSO and will in turn create a photographic, painted, sculpted or media work inspired by it. The work of the artist and the chosen photo will be exhibited together. “
I chose a photo of the Cooper building the wood barrels in the distillery. This photo reminded me of my childhood growing up helping and watching my father make his home made wine. Connecting to those memories inspired this completed painting. Continuing on my exploration of color, line and space.
