Jordan Van Sewell - Small Works Gallery Opening

Monday Dec 03 2012 7:30 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in Prairie Ink Restaurant

Showing Dreams.

“The piece that started my thoughts and ideas for this show Dreams began as a recollection of my time as a brakeman back in the 1970’s. That manifested as the piece I Was A Brakeman On The Devil’s Steam Train; in which a newt is firing (a fireman) coal into the tender. Steam trains were long gone when I hired on in nineteen hundred and seventy two. Sure I’d seen them as a kid running out of Minnedosa and Wynyard Saskatchewan...but I digress. Dreams has taken some artistic license on the topic as these aren’t necessarily my dreams. Everyone has a dream.”
