Rosemary - Memories of a Dutch Family's Immigration to Canada
See photos of the artwork currently in our physical gallery at the station. We also have on our YouTube channel the interview of Rosemary and her work by Jennifer Thorpe.
You can also see Rosemary’s work in our virtual gallery.
Upon the death of her mother, Rosemary’s family realizes that their mother regretted immigrating to Canada. To come to terms with what had transpired, Rosemary set about to tell their story on what immigration meant to the family. This collection of work took Rosemary Sloot 7 years to complete and still resonates with the artist today. The paintings are taken from “snapshots” of memories in occupied Holland. Moments capture leaving Holland, to disembarking from the Train in Canada, are superimposed on the environment of the new world. – Cameron Porteous
