Vanessa Croome’s second show titled “Fragmented” endeavours to illustrate personal themes that have surfaced in Croome’s life in the last few years. Love, death, and family, and how they relate to one another. How fragmented and divided life is and how we actually begin to see this as we age and experience mortality around us. Croome also continues with her exploration of abstract landscape, and the landscapes that inspire her to be outdoors and to be creative.

Somewhere between Toronto and northern Ontario, between childhood and adolescence, 13-year-old Bea (Charlotte Salisbury) is facing down growing-up, and isn’t sure she likes what she sees, especially with her parents on the edge of divorce. Then she meets Kate (Lucinda Armstrong Hall), she is funny, outspoken and tough. Though Bea and Kate are seemingly opposites, they strangely fit together. Under Kate’s influence, Bea finds her courage. But being brave has a price, especially when it means making a difficult choice between “never squealing” or speaking out.

Always been interested in human nature and the impact that societal burdens and expectations have on our humanity. Growing up in India, where things are different from here in the west but not everything is different, there are always expectations that can turn into burdens and that’s my focus. Some of the paintings here focus on our voyeuristic urge, to watch, to judge without thinking for ourselves and a few others are more positive like being part of a supportive structure, being right in the middle of that drastic change we want to see.
