Details

Ocean + Outport is Winnipeg's first solo exhibition of work by celebrated printmaker and painter David Blackwood. Born on Newfoundland’s eastern coast, the artist is a master of hot and cold. Often setting his scenes at night, he routinely offsets the cool greys of the North Atlantic with a lantern’s glowing flame. Blackwood’s imagery is a marriage of opposites, whether between human beings and the harsh environment they rely on, or tradition and modernization.
