Patricia Morris, SCA

The inspiration for my current series of paintings, “Trans Canada Drive”, comes from my love of moving through the Canadian landscape.

 

Born in Beauharnois QC, raised in Kitimat BC, and having lived in New Brunswick and Ontario before settling in Pointe Claire QC, I have taken many long drives over the years to visit family and friends. My ancestral roots in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Alberta have expanded my Canadian adventures by enticing me to visit more of our vast country.

 

As I began to experiment with techniques for representing the experience of motion through landscape, the extent of my travels suggested the possibility of creating a Canadian collection, one that includes all the provinces and territories.

 

So, I now invite you to be a passenger, to remember being a passenger, and to recall moments of staring out windows at landscapes that exist only in fluid moments. You are interacting but removed, moving fast yet sitting still, you are here, and between here and there. A fleeting glance becomes a substantial source for insight and inspiration.

Enjoy your Trans Canada Drive!
