Robin Hollingdrake, Fish Eye View
- Tell us about the salmon artwork you have in the Salmon Run Project: The Exhibition. What made you want to submit a proposal for the Salmon Run Project?
It was both delightful and challenging to create my Salmon Run art work. I’m all for more juried projects like this in Mississauga. It was delightful, in stirring wonderful memories of kayaking on the Credit River, with Salmon jumping and splashing all around meIt was also challenging to attempt several variations on my fish, before finding just the right materials, colours and surface treatments. When you view the fish, think about what the fish can see on the riverbanks, with ever changing views, and more development. How exciting it is to be swimming in a school of fish, all charging in the same direction, led by strong natural urges of nature.
- What do you currently have lined up in terms of artistic opportunities? For people interested in finding more of your artwork, do you have a website, blog, Twitter account or gallery?
This spring and summer I have been working on the little black dress art project, for an event in London in September.I’m also trying to finish some pieces for the AWOL Square Foot Show at the Twist Gallery this summer…….and trying to update my website www.robinhollingdrake.com.
