Melissa Neil uses landscape painting as a vehicle to explore notions of time, memory and place. A new body of work smoking lake considers the experiences of Ukrainian women who immigrated to the Smoky Lake (Alberta) region in the late 1800’s. Imagery of present day piles of brush, gravel pits and stagnant sloughs allude to the work and experiences of an ephemeral past. Oil paintings on linen and mylar will be presented.
The artist gratefully acknowledges the funding support from the City Enrichment Fund.
