Jeff Molloy "Jack Pine"
The Adventures of JACK PINE, has its roots in Canadian lore. Old canoe paddles, the hockey sweater, historical flags, and the blankets tell Canada’s rugged northern story in compelling colour and dimensions.
The title, JACK PINE, derived from the infamous Tom Thomson painting, is a national personification of how we view ourselves. More than just our landscape this work provides a different interpretation of Canada by presenting the viewer with cultural objects that have preconceived personal meaning. The work is underscored with a deep sense of social and historical commentary, with a light touch of iconoclastic humour thrown into the mix.
