Jackie Carter - The Moulting Period

Solo exhibition presenting the work of North Bay-based artist Jackie Carter.

"In this body of work I explore concepts of rejuvenation and identity transformation. Through painted imagery of dead, flightless birds I question the expectations which are attached to the functionality of a creature, and how this informs its identity. If a bird cannot fly, is it still a bird? Does it hold value as a bird, and is it whole? I am interested in what happens when a subject does not fulfill its perceived primary functional role. Re-purposing fabrics and frames to create compositional harmonies of colour and texture, these elements are given new life, just as the dead birds are activated within the imagery compositions."
