Jeanne Cannizzo at Winchester Gallery Modern

Jeanne Cannizzo is a Victoria, BC artist who works on both paper and canvas. There are strong graphic and expressionistic aspects to her work and the content often deconstructs high-profile events from the news media. Works in this exhibition come from three different series. Small Boys Unit is about the children who were forced to become combatants in the 1991-2002 civil war in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Northern Waters is her response to the sinking of the ‘Kursk’, a Russian submarine which sank with a crew of 118, in the Barents Sea in 2000. At least 23 survived the explosion and several lived long enough to write final notes of love and farewell to their families. Fear of Flying illustrates some of the ways the artist tries to calm her anxieties about flying, which have been heightened more explicitly since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
