A collection of hand-cut photographs by Toronto-based artist Fiona Freemark. Contemplating the personal significance of a family cottage built in the 1950s, “Ottawa Valley” explores the gradual changes that have occurred in that space as well as the surrounding Ontario landscape. As Freemark states:
“I look to how routines, aesthetic and purpose define the location to me. I am interested in documenting some of the subtle shifts of change over the years which is inevitable in a shared space. I often find myself considering the interior spaces and their relation to the natural landscape beyond. There is a constant back-and-forth between the two, and I can’t help but reflect on my existence in relation to my community and to nature itself.”
