Mary Celestino: Middle Island, A Disquieted Spirit

Mary Celestino, Cormorant Wave Over Lake Erie, 2010, acrylic on canvas
Mary Celestino: Middle Island, A Disquieted Spirit features works that focus themselves upon the ecological devastation of Middle Island, Canada’s southernmost point, due to the infestation of large water birds called cormorants. These paintings, created by local painter Mary Celestino, seek to underscore the enormous philosophical divide between those who argue against the notion of reassembling injured ecosystems and those who say that in some cases, we have no choice.
