March 31 – April 22, 2018
Opening reception March 31, 2 – 5 PM
loop Gallery is proud to present The Perpetuation of Memory, a new exhibition by Linda Heffernan. Continuing her practice of working with open source satellite imagery, and her preoccupation with the impact humans have on the natural world, Heffernan in this exhibition uses contemporary Google Earth images to recreate a series of First World War battle sites. Inspired partly by the upcoming centennial of the Armistice of November 11, 1918, the resulting images juxtapose the violence of war against impressionistic landscapes, commenting on the passage of time and the ultimate resiliency of nature.
Linda Heffernan is a Cobourg-based artist exploring themes of consumer capitalism and bureaucracy in an ever more interconnected global economy. She has a BFA from OCAD University and her work is included in private and public collections in Canada. Linda Heffernan has been a member of loop Gallery since 2006. She has exhibited her work in a number of galleries in Toronto’s Queen West district, as well as Whitby’s Station Gallery, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, and the Northumberland Art Gallery.
