“The Swirl of Life” exhibition merges my love of photography with my love of the written word. To me each photograph tells a story, which compels me to combine the images with words as I have in this show. This exhibit combines photographed images with photographed poems that I produce on my Instagram account @s.r.d.poetry. It is an exploration of combining an external photographic image with the internal dialogue of poetry, connecting the mood of a poem with a photograph. The images are from a variety of locations including Jackson Park right here in Peterborough, Cobourg, the Kawarthas, Manitoba, Ireland and Italy.
Sylvia is an artist based in Peterborough. For her all art emotes a story. Growing up in Saskatchewan gave Sylvia a love for the raw beauty of both the land and human interaction with geography. Her many years living in the beauty of the Kawarthas has also inspired her narratives.
