"Race the Roaring Fraser III"
Jane Everett, "Race the Roaring Fraser III," 2012, mixed media on vellum, 36” x 24”.
Edward Epp and Jane Everett team up in Landings, an exhibition that considers juxtapositions of land and water in the British Columbia landscape. Everett’s drawings in the Port Mann series consider the new bridge across the Fraser River. “I am drawn to construction sites for what they say about what we build and why we build it,” she says. “And to bridges, in particular, as the perfect metaphor for an amorphous but constant longing to reach the other shore.” Epp’s paintings, meanwhile, combine layered washes of acrylic paint over colourful pastel line renderings of views around his new home near Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island.
Nov. 21 to Dec. 5 at Bugera Matheson Gallery in Edmonton
