Manon Labrosse @ AXENÉO7

How to Paint Death According to Lucy explores our need to see what isn’t there and our relationship with the wilderness, be it from being connected or disconnected. Inspired by a short story by Margaret Atwood titled Death by Landscape, the landscapes are meant to have a polarizing effect of restlessness and subdued acceptance. In addition, it considers the idea of metempsychosis, transition, and the possibility of an “in-between” world where The Wilderness rules and we have to assimilate by becoming rooted in nature.

Jillian McDonald @ AXENÉO7
In Crystal Lake, McDonald exhibits recent work in video, drawing, and prints that feature northern landscapes, paranormal visions, and folklore — both real and imagined. Local actors, glowing rocks, fog, or flags are characters in a visual narrative.
