“On a road trip down the west coast of Newfoundland, I happened upon a cemetery perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Plastic flowers were scattered across the site, spilling down onto the rocks below. These vibrant flowers contrasted with the weathered grass of the graveyard, now exposed at the onset of spring, faded by the harsh winter snow. Providing a comforting welcome, these lovingly placed flowers convey how this community mourns. Real flowers so often given as an expression of love, are short-lived and quickly wilt. Artificial flowers, although they may become tattered over the seasons, remain intact and resilient to the harsh coastal climate. The irony of their inorganic persistence is a compelling tribute to everlasting love.”

Heather Jackman is a 4th-year visual arts student from Corner Brook studying at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University. Her practice revolves around the themes of care and emotional expression, through the creation of life drawings and more recently, photographs. Heather was inspired to explore the expressive nature of colour in photography when she travelled to Tasmania on student exchange in 2020. This led to her first solo show at the Tina Dolter Gallery earlier this year. She is currently working as a curatorial assistant at the Grenfell Art gallery.
