Gordon Shadrach’s painting In Conversation shows a young Black Canadian woman, highlighting the complex layering of historical, familial, and self-chosen visual cues of the sitter’s identities. The carefully-constructed pose of the woman suggests her comfortable self-awareness, while her clothing and accessories hint to personal and familial histories. She presents herself as a somewhat inscrutable subject, resisting the viewer’s gaze and, at the same time, as a self-fashioned icon representing multiple facets of the contemporary woman. See this as part of the exhibition Here We Are Here: Black Canadian Contemporary Art, on view now at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia until October 27.
