This landscape exhibition is an exploration of the South Shore of Nova Scotia to create images that mirror the idea of evanescence.
The landscape for me is a bridge between the deepest parts of my spirit and the outer temporal world. This intersection is of great interest to me. The mists, drops of water, wet surfaces all reflect a transient evanescence. This creates a vulnerably of the scene, it’s breathtaking beauty, but it’s also temporary and the scene may disappear and transform at any moment.
I believe this concept mirrors the vulnerability and transience of our lives, we are not the same today as we were yesterday and we will all change again tomorrow. It is for us to take in the beauty of today, to live in the moment and to be aware of its evanescence.
