“Waves” by Bernhard Cociancig
Austria-based artist Bernhard Cociancig created his triptych “Waves” during his stay at the Artist in Residence program in Toronto. The theme for the program at Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Island (from 17-Sep to 01-Oct, 2018), was water “Once Upon Water”.
Bernhard view has been to look at the impact water has on the island, its inhabitants, the flora and fauna. His approach for “Waves” specifically was how water (waves) causes erosions to the island; and in turn, on his canvasses. He applied dry earth pigments (sanguine and charcoal) to the canvas before he exposed the canvas to the waves of Lake Ontario. The energy of the water is tangible and the more time you spend with this impactful and interesting artwork, the more it will speak to you.
“Waves”: donated to charity
“Waves” is generously donated by Bernhard towards a charity of our choice. After careful consideration, we have chosen a local non-profit organization. Essential to a small community like Bragg Creek, the Bragg Creek Community Center offers many community programs. Through its volunteers, it also hosts fun events throughout the year, like Taste of Bragg Creek and Bragg Creek Days. And last but not least, an array of community groups depend on the BCCC, like the Community Church, Performing Arts, Community Kindergarten etc.
