Lisa Creskey's solo exhibition.Sunset Cruise will open January 15 and run until February 4, 2021.
Scientists have predicted that due to the melting of the sea-ice of the Northwest Passage, animal species from the Arctic Ocean, Pacific and Atlantic Ocean will interact in unprecedented ways. Using imagery of a recently discovered prehistoric toothed arctic bird Tingmiatornis arctica and the spotting of humpback whales in the arctic seas to create a surrealist organic landscape in contrast with the mechanical imagery of an icebreaker ship, these sculptural works aim to allow the expressive potential of clay to express how individuals are attempting to mentally process and understand climate change and its significance.
My primary drive as a visual artist has been that of story telling from a personal point of departure or connection. To establish this connection, I often use historical documents and artifacts as a visual point of departure in my work. As I have spent most of my life in the country, responding to nature and human dependence on the land are the strongest themes in my work.
