The exhibit celebrates the mesmerizing allure of water. The artwork invites viewers to immerse themselves in the breathtaking beauty of Ontario’s untamed landscapes, where pristine waterfalls, meandering rivers, and tranquil lakes come to life on canvas. This exhibition is a testament to the enduring bond between humanity and the untamed beauty of the Canadian wilderness, offering visitors a chance to connect with nature’s most captivating element.
In her work, Janet Horne-Cozens hones in on her deep connection to the beauty of Canada’s waterways. She aims to shed light on the delicate balance between humanity and nature, and the consequences of our actions on these invaluable ecosystems.
Each brushstroke and colour palette the artist employs reflect the ever-evolving stories of water. These visual narratives are meant to be both an homage to the natural world and a stark reminder of its fragility.
My hope is that this exhibition serves as a catalyst for dialogue, sparking conversations about the urgent need for conservation, sustainable practices, and collective responsibility. Together, we can turn the tide, ensuring that future generations inherit a world where the wilderness waters continue to flow freely and flourish, as they have for millennia.
