Landscape as Muse

Season One - Episode 6

Nistowiak Falls with Holly Fay
Nistowiak Falls are likely the most spectacular falls on the famed Churchill River system. It is here that the mighty river forces itself through a 4 metre wide, 10 metre high gorge. The sheer force of the falls creates a roar that can be heard several kilometres away. Painter Holly Fay spends her time at the falls creating numerous sketches and pastel paintings. Fay studies the tones found within the blue/white waterfalls and grey/brown Precambrian rock formations, manifesting her impressions of the landscape in two large abstract canvases.
