Local artist's work on display

North Portal artist Lindsay Arnold is flanked by a couple of her works from Through the Looking Glass, which is on display at the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum's project wall.

North Portal artist Lindsay Arnold's latest exhibit at the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum (EAGM) offers a humourous look at how appearances can be deceptive.

Through the Looking Glass is comprised of several drawings that are on the EAGM's project wall. They were part of the exhibit Rooted at the EAGM three years ago, and have recently been in the EAGM's permanent collection.

The woman depicted in the drawings is part human, and part tree. In one drawing, known as The Hypocrite, her legs are replaced by a tree stump, and she is seen holding an ax. Trees have been chopped down in the background.

“You see that she has done a good job of cutting everyone else down in the background, and she has more work ahead of her,” said Arnold. “It's a juxtaposition between a very refined lady in a corset, and hacking down all those around you. And I think we know someone who might be like that.”

In another drawing, the woman's arms are replaced by branches.

Arnold said there is a certain aggressiveness in the woman despite her polite and reserved appearance.

She said she likes to incorporate humour into her work, and people will laugh once they see the drawings.

Through the Looking Glass will remain on display until April 17.
