FEATURE ARTIST: Claude-Maurice Gagnon
"In the imagery of his artwork Claude-Maurice represents true diversity of identity through portraits, self portraits, family portraits. All give a genuine feeling of troubled confusion, of fear and strangeness.
Faces loom out of the mist, they sit within the soup of lost or losing identity. There is tragedy here, and there is hurt. The tragedy of a society that doesn't care to recognise all identities, only some, and the life-long hurt of living a partial life, seen through the bigoted prism of others."
