Maritime artist Nathan Cann uses new media and experimental printmaking techniques to create monotypes that explore the haunting of lands.
The dwellings which at first may seem benign, under closer inspection reveal reflections of their ghostly forests. The chilling visual effect is created through a printmaking practice involving both xylene and acetone monotypes. This unearthing of hidden secrets within the architecture of New Brunswick is impressively eerie and evokes immediate contemplation between industry, the wilderness, and Canada's eastern coast.
A fantastic contrast is present between the detailed architecture and the powerfully sharp mark making seen throughout Nathan Cann's work. We love the way the prints float on the page seemingly in an undetermined space; much like a haunting memory.
