The Stephen Bulger Gallery is pleased to present our second solo show of colour photographs by Scott Conarroe. “By Sea” looks at the coastline perimeter of North America and the precarious undulating edge of our civilization.
Canada has the most expansive coastline on Earth; its boundary with the United States is the world's longest non-militarized boarder. Together these two nations form a vast geo-cultural bloc that extends from polar extremes to the tropics, from sparse hinterlands to modern metropolises. “By Sea” presents a study of North America on the cusp of a new climatic era. Cataclysmic weather and global social upheaval are anticipated, but for the time being they are seen as problems for others elsewhere. Conarroe’s photographs present the fading innocence of this idyll and a visual reference of the current state of the continent’s shorelines.
