Colour dances off the walls of the art entitled “Ziibaaska’Iganagooday | Jingle Dresses” by artist Christian Chapman and encircles the gallery walls. Screen prints with pops of colour such as orange, blue, teal showcase each dress, each woman, and each story.
As a photographer we came in to document the works for the gallery who wish to document the work accurately. Showcasing the brush strokes on each painting paired with the screen printing was a key component of the job. The modern techniques of Andy Warhol bring a modern twist to this series – “while injecting humor, irony and recognizable content into his unique mashup.” (Station Gallery exhibition write up).
To document the storytelling of another artist is a great honour and we love sharing these visual stories.
To see all the works in this exhibition visit the Station Gallery May 31 – June 30, 2019 in the Coppa Gallery & Heritage Galleries.
