Black Ice Exhibition at the AGO .....
Feb 28, 2011

A video made at the media launch for David Blackwood's Black Ice Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Beautiful prints from David's childhood in Newfoundland, and a way of life that may soon be gone forever.

According to the CBC, due to the continued collapse of the the East Coast fisheries, up to 80 percent of the fishing fleet will never work on the oceans again.

With the music I was trying to go for a melancholy Chris Issacs sound as the little out-port villages depicted in his prints are entirely dependant on fishing as a way of life, and one has to assume they will slowly dissapear from the landscape.
