The Mountain In Our Living Room / The North York Project (Child Is Father Of The Man)

Adrian Fish, Yael Brotman


Brotman’s paintings are based on photographs of her upbringing in Winnipeg. Featuring a mountain in the family living room, the works reference Guy Maddin’s film My Winnipeg and connect portraiture, memory and constructed narrative. Fish documents places that possess psychic weight associated with his childhood experiences in North York. His images also reference the 1802 Wordsworth poem My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold.
