In this exhibit, Mort’s passion for environmentalism is combined with his practice as a photorealist oil painter. However, the works on view are all giclees on canvas and one on paper, presenting images which have been reproduced for years and are available in many iterations.
This show is not so much about seeing the artist’s technique up close and personal. Rather, it encourages awareness for the foundation established by the Mort Family to encourage good stewardship of the earth and environmental awareness through the arts. In many ways, this exhibit celebrates our role as caretakers of our tiny oasis in space, presenting familiar images of our planet and setting them at a human scale.
In “One World,” our blue planet is the size of a basketball and its colour is reflected on the metal studs of heavy, old doors. It is a tiny orb amongst seashells in “Oceans,” reminding us of the perception that our planet is but a mere speck in the cosmos, like a grain of sand.
Mort’s tableaus are reminiscent of traditional, northern European paintings, called nature morte in French, literally dead nature, and a connection to the artist’s surname is so obvious one must make note of the irony. Read More
