This virtual exhibition was created by Matt Cripps.

Summary

Shadow Ecology pairs Heather McCaig’s sculpted glass and Emily Phillips’ paintings to create an enchanting exhibition inspired by Canada’s fragile ecosystems.

The shadows, here, refer to environmental resources stripped from rural areas and moved to urban ones – one region feels the loss and the other doesn’t have to consider the damage done in the process.

McCaig spotlights Canada’s disappearing ecosystems while Phillips connects us with beloved wild places in the New Brunswick Bay of Fundy region.
