Opening reception: Thursday, February 6, 6-8PM
Following the opening of his highly acclaimed touring survey exhibition, One Wave, Ned Pratt has released a series of striking new photographs that mark a subtle shift in his practice.
"Walrus was the name of the first boat my father ever owned - a boat like this.
I know it's a sentimental image. But it's also darkly beautiful, I think."
While Pratt continues to emphasize "found" colour and abstraction in the landscape, he has become increasingly interested in further distilling his images. He has also extended his subjects to include urban settings such as office buildings and water reservoirs, establishing a juxtaposition with Newfoundland's iconic rural landmarks.
