Water Over the Bridge
Wollf, Corinna Michelle 1973-
A line of bright colour stretches West to East, across the front gallery floor, connecting two large-format charcoal drawings of the Saskatoon bridges in various forms of dysfunction – twisted, warped and blocked. The south side of the gallery is filled with colourful scenes of carnival, spirit animals, prairie plants, a multitude of characters, and scenes of oceans and volcanoes. A strong central figure stands in command of it all. This is where the last two years of working on my Master of Fine Art thesis has taken me. In this statement, I will attempt to add some literary context to help in the navigation of the visual works contained in the Water Over the Bridge exhibition.
