Camouflage, reflection, and construction.
There are the three themes that will be represented in Two Rivers Art Gallery’s newest exhibition, which is all about immigration.
It is called Transition, and is being constructed by Quebec-based artist José Luis Torres, who has made the journey across Canada to create the piece for the gallery.
In a release, Two Rivers said Torres is building the structure in the gallery entirely from everyday objects picked out from local secondhand stores.
“Torres selected these everyday objects because they are precisely the essential items many of us seek out when building anew home,” the said.
Torres himself has lived experience with massive relocation, he was born in Argentina and made the move to Quebec in 2003.
The exhibition opens on Saturday (February 11) and will remain open until April 9th.
Tomorrow (Friday) night there will also be an opening reception at 7:30, where Torres will discuss his work and artistry.
