Donated by Cindy Dyson
Cindy Dyson (b. 1968, Winnipeg, MB) applies acrylic paints to canvas using palette knives, fingers, spray bottles and found objects. Her work plays with the flexibility of the paint, from a thin wash to heavy broad swaths of colour. Cindy is strongly influenced by artists who painted the everyday; like the 19th century Impressionists.
Seasonal activities are strictly dictated in Manitoba by our extreme climate. Winter is harsh and long and does not cede its throne easily. March teases with its early melts then chastises with its blizzards. When will the sun pierce through the dense grey cloud and warm our faces? Since 1957 Bridge Drive-In (BDI) bravely opens amongst the seasons’ battle. Pilgrims come from far and wide to hail the coming of spring. The length of the ordering line influences which ritual is performed first; ice cream or walk the bridge. The sun and its angle determine the weather in Winnipeg. But, perhaps the pilgrim’s yearning and commitment to ritual urges spring to persevere and reign.
