Shop Talk Artists’ Statement Two artists meet over tea in handmade pottery mugs, of course, for a never-long-enough conversation about life with clay. For fifteen years these two friends have shared their passion for creating in the same medium while expressing that passion in contrasting ways. A second cup is filled to celebrate a brilliant success, a shoulder is offered …

The Lost City “For the first time, a Beaverbrook Art Gallery touring exhibition opens in Saint John – and for good reason. Seventy-five black-and-white photographs drawn from the artist’s exceptional archive are presented, depicting 1960s life along Main Street in the city’s North End before ‘urban renewal.’ Poignant and sublime, these narrative photographs are among the finest visual documents of …

Where I Live Artist’s Statement Familiarity can blind us to the beauty around us. After decades living in one area it is easy to take for granted; even in a place like Saint John with an abundance of interesting geography and architecture. I become much more aware when I pick up a camera and go for a walk. I can …

Origins Artist’s Statement This show will challenge your perception and definition of “imperfections”. Are imperfections rare or common, negative or positive, to be covered up or embraced and embellished? I find natural objects like trees, stone and people grow richer with age. They have more bumps and scars which, to me, makes them more interesting and precious. I have also …

Cynthia DeCoste

Landscape Interactions Artist’s Statement I love playing with colour and shapes, I love experimenting with perspectives and horizon lines. For me the fun of creating a painting is “playing” with the landscape. I paint the landscape as I see it, the sky, the ground and the water are constantly moving and always changing, forever interacting and playing with each other. …

Mark Gilbert – Sept. 2018

Seeing the Patient Artist’s Statement As an artist and researcher, I have always aspired to create artworks that authentically illuminate the relationships we all rely on in our lives as patients and caregivers. Portraiture as an art form and qualitative methodology embraces association rather than separation. It is through the interaction between artist and sitter that access is sought and …
