The News by Jennifer Hicks
The News uses newspapers in different languages, including Japanese, Gaelic, Arabic, Vietnamese, Urdu and more, as the foundation for a series of collages. Words combine with hand-painted, drawn and cut images that represent conversations with new Hamiltonians from various cultures and countries. Visually pleasing, with swaddled babies as a focal point, the work is family friendly and inclusive. Babies are a safe symbol; no matter where in the world they enter, newborns love and trust unconditionally. This series is a testament to rich culture and fond memories - a visual representation of the deep roots that inform our lives.
Turner Park Branch offers artists from the community an opportunity to exhibit small intimate quarterly shows in a dynamic public setting.
