A Year on the Water

A Year on the Water is a year’s worth of paintings of a single view of the marina harbour in Leamington, ON. Every morning at 7:30 AM Rosemary Dzus photographed this view and documented it in painting. The artist embarked on this project to develop her understanding of water and sky and the rendering of these phenomena on a two dimensional surface. At a first look it is a straightforward collection of studies of natural elements. As the body of work grew, the artist saw this as a daily journal illustrating the variations of light, weather, clouds and wind. The project is about time, grief, and the ephemeral nature and insubstantiality of our impressions and experiences.

This exhibition is in partnership with the Manitoba Arts Network through their Touring Exhibition Program.
