Art Exhibition: Migrations, Frontiers and Territories – A solo show by Anick Fernandez

November 3 @ 11:00 am - November 27 @ 4:00 pm EDT

The Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre is excited to present the solo exhibition featuring award-winning artist, Anick Fernandez’ latest works.

Visit the Joyner Gallery to see the artist’s collection of collagraphs and monotypes in three acts: Migrations, Frontiers and Territories. The artworks represent the movement of many people around the world and the barriers found along the way.

 

Migrations, Frontiers and Territories – Anick Fernandez

For the artist, creating is a deep need. Collagraphy and drypoint are her preferred printmaking techniques. Committed to protecting the environment, she uses recyclable materials to build her plates and as a support for her paintings.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

People around the world are constantly moving from one place to another for different reasons. As they travel, they may be confronted not only by physical borders but also by all sorts of barriers including prejudice towards cultural, religious, or ethnic differences. Every person leaving their country is also leaving a trace behind, like footprints that others can follow in a non-stop migratory flow that has been going on for thousands of years.

The borders dividing territories are always places of movement. Some of them appear easy to go through, but not all.

Territories may seem very different from each other, but just like people, they are all interdependent. We are now more conscious than ever of the interconnection between them.

I would like to spark in those people looking at my work a different view of the world around us.
