Back to Gros Morne Artists

 


Location:
Port Maitland, NS

About the Gros Morne Experience:
The month of my residency was spent trying to learn as much as possible about the Park. I was overwhelmed by the immensity of its wilderness.

I hoped NOT to meet wildlife when I was alone on the a trail. Finally I did meet a female moose which seemed as timid and curious as I.

Each artist is required to interact in some way with Park visitors or the community. I chose to go into the school at Woody Point to do a collaboration with the children, from kindergarten to Grade 6.

I created the landscape and they drew images in magic marker to inhabit it.

The process worked this way; I photocopied their drawings, transferred them to an etching plate, drew the landscape around them, etched the plate and then printed in colour.

The kids were great - very helpful and willing to try and draw their games or the animals they knew. I loved their images.
