About the Exhibition:
Portraits & Inscapes: Sheila Spence & Arnold Saper presents the work of two Winnipeg artists who over many years have focused on the portrait. In their overall bodies of work they have portrayed people close to them, their family and friends, and also those relatively unknown to them. They do so in different media: Sheila Spence uses photography; Arnold Saper works in pencil, pen, coloured pencil and intaglio prints. Their work is personal, insightful and compelling, inviting the viewer meet their sitters, or subjects. They are, naturally, simultaneously subjective and objective. We see the artist’s subjective feelings or connection with the sitter, yet the finished work presents the individual objectively so we can have our own sense of the person.
