Rosemary - Memories of a Dutch Family's Immigration to Canada

Go to our Youtube channel to view the interview of Rosemary and her work by Jennifer Thorpe.
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 captures leaving Holland, to disembarking from the Train in Canada, are superimposed on the environment of the new world. – Cameron Porteous,  theporteousgroup@sympatico.ca
