But Now Am Found marks the first solo exhibition for Newfoundland artist Cara Kansala. Alongside paintings in her vibrant signature style, Kansala unveils a celebratory new collection of sculptures, each the transformation of an object salvaged from the brink of abandon. In this exhibition, old ceramics come into their own, forgotten dinky cars find places to park, storm windows saved from demolished houses have new views and once-forgotten furniture is reinvented and given new life. Kansala describes her vision for the show as “a joyful, colourful celebration of things lost and then found…The idea that we can find joy and purpose in things left behind - that we have the strength to look for possibilities and hope in places and things that seem otherwise.”
