Patricia Moore spends several months every year on Prince Edward Island where she maintains a home and studio. The artist finds the Island a productive and energizing place to work and has chosen PEI for her contribution to the OH CANADA exhibition project at Gallery on the Bay.


PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND

The Island is in my mind.

Changes over the years for sure. But also some things stay.

The sun, the sky, the wind, the water. Early morning light, late afternoon, sun setting in the west and long shadows on the fields when the night skies are clear and the moon is full.

My paintings for OH CANADA reflect PEI and particularly my area of the Island. The way the sky and water mirror each other. The way the land lays low and undulating, the clouds fleecing gently across the sky.

Watching the fishers and their days. Early morning heading out to sea. Returning from open water through the gut mid afternoon. The boats are tethered, at rest, then out again in many shades of weather.

Boats, soft shadows on the water, in fog, in early rays of the sun and in the deep long shadows after the sun has set. They are anchors.

During days of light, birds call and swoop, wind blows in from the sea. And nights when the sky, clear, is full of stars, silent foxes sit looking at the moon.
