Paper Trail Exhibition - Journey over Arctic & Ocean
Paper Trail: Journey over Arctic and Ocean
October 11, 2018 – January 31, 2019
Jenn Whitford Robins’ first passion is her involvement with the Canadian Arctic, closely followed by her love of creating original prints on the etching press.
In her solo exhibition Paper Trail, she explores both Arctic and Pacific ocean. Her works on the Pacific focus on the theme of both sailing and the ageless quality of the ancient dock-pilings of the west coast. Her works on the arctic focus on the icy landscape, in all its glory. Works appear on both paper and a process on metal Whitford Robins developed herself.
The exhibition includes a series of her photographs, capturing images of frozen seascapes, including the restoration of the historic ship, Lady of Lourdes, by the young people of Tuktoyaktuk.
