White Water Gallery Presents:

Unlike place (which I define as seen from the inside), landscape can only be seen from the outside, as a backdrop for the experience of viewing...Space defines landscape, where space combined with memory defines place - Lucy Lippard


There are places we carry. Places lived, places loved, places we can only dream of. These places are ours, they are the homes of many or a few. They are mountains, roads, houses, oceans...they are forever changing in real time but for now, here they are still. By painting places where I have loved I am able to be reminded of memories and moments made. I can be swimming in the cold Atlantic off of the Gloucester Coast, I can be walking the streets of my college town, I can be falling in and out of love again.

 

Some of these aerial paintings are not pure sentiment. I have come to look at them with an ecological lens. To survey and explore the impact humans have on the land. Roads & buildings are left blank in an abstract and simple representation of the landscape and place. Some depict the pastoral centers of the Northeast Kingdom, while others look to cities, fracking, and industrial agriculture.

This work is a lifelong exploration of how man-kind connects to the land. I invite the viewer to join me. To reflect on their own memories and sense of place.
 

Ceilidh Galloway-Kane was born and raised in East Hardwick, Vermont. After going to Smith College to study Art History (not to mention a brief fore in Maine) she returned to the Northeast Kingdom. Ceilidh is an arts advocate, educator and director of The Art House. She paints during the in between moments.
