Solo ExhibitionManifest Expression: Europe 2.0
Feb. 28, 2013 - Mar. 30, 2013
Rotunda Gallery, Kitchener City Hall, Kitchener, ON
Most recently my travels have taken me to Europe. A bicycle trip with my Mother was the impetus for the journey. We followed the Danube river from its source in southern Germany, to the heart of Austria, through Slovakia and into Hungary. What I discovered was a continuous, cultural thread of creative expression in the form of graffiti.
These paintings illustrate a common theme of visual resistance in the form of graffiti. From small towns to large cities and even in the countryside, graffiti was always a reminder that we were never too far from human settlements. I couldn't help but wonder about the history of where we were travelling. What did it look like a hundred years ago or five hundred? How many people have travelled this route before us? By capturing the graffiti within the landscape on film, and then documenting with paint, my goal was to provide a visual record of our journey.
The aim of this exhibition is not to advocate for or against the merits of graffiti. The aim is to highlight the fact that creative expression is an intrinsic part of what it means to be human. For thousands of years people have been writing on walls and it continues to this day. The walls may have changed and the marking tools may have evolved, but the one constant is that people feel compelled to express themselves.
