PAUSES AND TRANSITIONS – work by Anne-Laure Djaballah

Anne-Laure Djaballah received her Bachelors of Fine Arts from Concordia University in Montreal and her Masters of Fine Arts at the University of Lethbridge.

Artist Statement:

Incidents of paint linger in the working mind of the painter as continuous thrills, as possibilities, like words you may soon use in a sentence, and – in a manner which seems to exist outside of spoken language – as beacons of hope to any human being for whom visuality is the site of questions and answers about existence. – Mira Schor

While walking here in Lethbridge, paint stays in the back of my mind. How do I respond to this landscape on canvas? How well can that small window express the vast prairie space? And, as this landscape is lived in, and with, it is never pristine. The residue of everyday living spills out into it – that is also a part of the landscape.

These thoughts get pondered through paint. Starting a painting, unsure of where it may end, the materiality of the paint pushes forward, asserting itself as a presence, enticing and full of possibilities. The colours, shapes, types of brushstrokes lead me down a path that opens up the potential of the canvas. The marks or colours may evoke this memory for me, or that connection for you. These discoveries continue long after the painting is done.

Oftentimes, these colourful moments are the most inspiring for me.

In the Main Gallery:

THE CASTLE RIVER AND PORCUPINE HILLS – work by Blake Wilson and Mike Judd

Mike Judd lives in the foothills where he is an ardent conservationist. He has spent a lifetime guiding hunters, trail-riders and dog-sledding tours. His life as an outfitter has influenced his philosophy extensively and guided him along the path from hunter/trapper to conservation activist and artist.
