"Edson’s vivid portrayal of the urban area, as well as the working class and underclass, creates a vision of Saint John that highlights the discrepancy between the pre-modern idyllic notion of life in Atlantic Canada and the more complicated reality of the region."

Yesterday Alex Colville died at age 92. He's one of the truly cool artists out there, and the fact that he was a Maritimer makes him all the more special to me. He'll be missed, and remembered always.
