A Foundation of Ash is an exhibition by St John’s-based artist Will Gill. Stemming from recent travels to wildfire-ravaged regions across Canada, this body of photographs is a synthesis of ideas, experiences, and types of environments that are central to his creative and subjective interests. Incorporating sculptural props and staged compositions within the natural environment or studio, the images’ themes are reflective and broad-ranging, exploring aspects of destruction, solitude, support, wonder, transcendence, and regeneration.
