Damien Worth | (re)Visions

April 26 – July 21, 2023

TD Bank Art Corridor

Charlottetown Library Learning Centre
97 Queen Street
Charlottetown, PE

this town is small and the Charlottetown Library Learning Centre are pleased to present (re)Visions, a solo exhibition by Damien Worth.

This series of mixed media paintings explores literary fiction as a means to explore contemporary landscape based dilemmas. Worth has selected a series of well known written works that use landscape as a central theme and ‘re-visions’ the content to reflect current ecological, social, and economic concerns. Worth sees the project as a call/response activity that establishes a dialogue through time/history and our evolving relationship with land usage and stewardship. He notes “I was immediately drawn to books that favour themes like resilience, rebellion, and reflection. I wanted to dissect our associations of a romantic, myth based idea of ‘site’, and contrast it to modern usage of land as commodity. I knew I wanted to abstract the idea of ‘destination’ as it relates to travel and navigation , and have the characters deal with a landscape that has agency. How would Thoreau’s Walden be revisioned during a never-ending wildfire season? How would the cast of Lost in the Barrens fair in the tundra if methane clouds were rampant?”.

Damien Worth is a multi-disciplinary artist that has exhibited in various national and international venues. His work is held in public collections such as the Confederation Centre art gallery, UNB art centre, the PEI and NL art bank, and Global Affairs art collection for embassies and consulate offices abroad.

This project is made possible thanks to the generous support of TD Bank, the City of Charlottetown, and Innovation PEI through the PEI Culture Action Plan.
