Repositioning a Place in the Heart
Annette Peterson reinterprets her dad’s memories of life at Parkerville Children’s Home in the 1950s through her paintings in Repositioning a Place in the Heart. Peterson began researching and recording his story during an artist residency at Midland Junction Arts Centre. This was followed by a residency at Parkerville Children’s Home, where she was able to paint ‘en plein air’ while re-listening to her dad’s history. Her dad’s story emerges through her work, his emotion intersecting with her own.
