Prospect 18: Echoes
A retired physician living in Halifax, Poulin recently graduated from NSCAD with a BFA in Textiles and the 2017 Starfish Student Art Award. The woven structures of her site-oriented installation allude to Brutalist design integrated into a landscape. Viewers are prompted to perceive the analogies between weaving and architecture, in particular the aesthetics of béton brut. Like her award-winning Winds of Change: a Lace-scape, Echoes plays with the effects of light and shadow. Exhibitions in the Prospect series introduce artists in the early phases of their careers.
