Focuses on Christopher Pratt's paintings of the last decade, each revealing his observations of a place changing even as it endures. Beginning in 2005, Pratt started to travel by car to "everywhere I've ever been," recording his travels in his "car books," in his memory, and, ultimately, in his paintings.
The paintings that resulted from this journey are vintage Pratt. They are also acts of remembering, of recording, of becoming the observer of transformation. Standing on "the littoral," looking toward the horizon, Pratt casts his eye on the perpetual presence of the ocean. Yet, his images- houses, spillways, bridges, and boats - also pay homage to the right angles of humanity. Buried in snow, at rest in a dock, they celebrate the built form.
This exquisite book, featuring essays by exhibition curator Mireille Eagan, archivist Larry Dohey, and Pratt himself, examines Pratt's interest in and preoccupation with transformation, the act of remembering, and his abstractions of the ineffable.
On July 1st, 2016, The Royal Newfoundland Regiment Gallery opened at The Rooms. It houses the exhibition, Beaumont-Hamel and the Trail of the Caribou: Newfoundlanders and Labradorians at War and at Home. The exhibition documents and explores the effects of the First World War on Newfoundland and Labrador, on those that fought, on the families and communities left behind, and on the politics, economy and future of Newfoundland an Labrador.
The exhibition catalogue contains first hand experiences of the people who were involved in and transformed by the conflict. These stories are supported by the participants, authentic objects and archival documents, many of which were donated by the thousands of people who came out to tell their family stories.
