Fogo Island Newfoundland

In the summer of 2022 I had the honour of being the artist 
in residence in Tilting, on Fogo Island Newfoundland Canada.
The works below are all in acrylic paint. The first row are 
of the environment of Tilting, and represent the history of
cod fishery which had come to an end after 300 years of
Fogo Island's culture and only industry. They were all made
en plein air.
The second row, is a series I've titled Fogo Rocks. They're
all oil on canvas. 
Climbing over the very rocks that took me to my painting site, 
a micro view of them struck me very strongly. I had a sense of
place unlike the panoramic view I had been painting. Recording
them made my residency complete.
