March 7 to April 21, 1996
While on a trip to Jasper and Banff in the summer of 1994, Vincente and Westhaver’s love of the mountains was renewed. When they heard of an opportunity to live and work at the Columbia Icefields for one week during the summer, they immediately began to plan their project. August 1995, found the artists once again at the Columbia Icefields amidst the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountains. The two immersed themselves in the experience of ever shifting sight and sensation as the glacier-influenced climate changed hourly, and sometimes minutely.
During five days of intensive work and dialogue, Vincente and Westhaver endeavoured to translate, into large pulp painting their vision of the colours, textures and shapes that surrounded them. The artwork on display is the artists’ way of sharing with you, the viewer, this experience which added much to their reservoir of mountain memories.
