Connection Exposed - Part II
On a fall Sunday morning in October, 75 souls gathered in a barn located on the edge of Nova Scotia’s shore for the showing of Connection Exposed. We were located on the edge of a cliff, surrounded by rolling hills, crashing waves, highland cattle and the architecture at Brian MacKay-Lyon’s, Shobac. Viewers were guided through a seated meditation while they were welcomed with tea and hot chocolate. They spent their crisp morning connecting with the artwork, each other and the sacred land. Connection Exposed is a body of work that speaks to the healing journey I began 4 years ago. After experiencing a childhood of deeply rooted, family trauma, I found myself again through my ongoing connection to nature. Each piece speaks to a moment in time within this story and the beauty I discovered within my trauma along the way. My hope is that this work finds you at a time when you need it most within your own journey.
