This virtual exhibition was created by Matt Cripps.
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.
Shadow Ecology is presented by AX, the Arts and Culture Centre of Sussex, New Brunswick, Canada. The project is part of the cultural program of Canada’s Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2021 and is supported by the New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture.
Artists: Heather McCaig and Emily Phillips. Virtual exhibition curator Matthew Cripps. McCaig’s artwork documented by photographer Colin Swift.
