The Craig Gallery welcomes Lunenburg artist Su Rogers with PACKING SALT FISH

rogersS

Join us to welcome Lunenburg artist Su Rogers and her incredibly provocative and powerful series of portraits. These large scale works are ripe with comment, veneration and pay a great homage to a population of Nova Scotian women who continue to carry an industry.

Packing Salt Fish: they stand to face the sea too, Su Rogers

“The paintings are a series of expressive figurative works that combine iconography, metaphor and text; all layered in a way that allows me to both explore the historical degradation of the fishery and venerate and monumentalize the women fish packers who work in small sheds throughout Nova Scotia.

The paintings draw upon different sources, including religious iconography, classical symbolism, folk traditions and motifs, as well as my own documentation of women at their place of work.”
