Sea Change / The Garden
February 1st - March 1st
Closing Reception Friday, February 28th, 7-9pm, all welcome.
For his latest exhibition at Assembly Gallery, John Haney presents new work from two ongoing photo series, Sea Change and The Garden. Sculpture, works on paper, and augmented found objects will round out the space, presenting a meditation on change, both personal and universal. The result perhaps, is a somewhat abstract, somewhat exact visual translation of, in no particular order: love, loss, heartbreak, freedom, replenishment, renewal, disorientation, separation, beauty, homecoming, leaving, disappearance, domesticity, clean air, happiness, darkness, emergence, and ultimately, metamorphosis.
John Haney's work across a range of media has been exhibited and collected in Canada, the US, and Germany. Most often, his subject comes back to being about places, stories, and the people who inhabit them. He lives in an old farmhouse on the upper reaches of the Bay of Fundy in Wood Point, New Brunswick, where two of his most recent efforts are stewarding a patch of Acadian Forest and developing the nascent Wood Point Art Projects.
