"The Starving Canít Eat Stone"
1999-10-20 until 1999-11-21
Bishop's University
Lennoxville, QC, CA Canada

In this exhibition we present a series of lyrical figurative paintings by Scott MacLeod. The exhibition title: The Starving canít eat stone is derived from the notorious coffin ships that carried Canadian timber to Europe and were filled with the human ballast of Irish immigrants instead of stones for their return journey to Canada.

Inspired by the monument to the 10,000 Irish emigrants who died in the 1840ís quarantine station of Grosse-Ile, Scott MacLeodís figurative paintings and drawings are a reminder of the pain, suffering and death of so many who did not survive their journey. In his work Scott MacLeod also links the Irish famine and migration to contemporary political tragedies and to the colonization of the North American prairies which resulted in the killing of the buffalo herds and to the alienation of the natives main livelihood.
