Five years ago, Bamford moved to Lunenburg, in a move he says was "preparing for the return to the studio full time." "It’s been absolutely wonderful helping bright young artists make their dreams come true, but I’d been an artist all my life, and it’s time for me to get back to doing that," he says. "In terms of the work in this show, something I’m most excited about now comes from observing the built material world in Lunenburg—fish hooks become a motif, and propellers... decoy ducks become expressive characters—I’m looking forward to this direction of assimilating my neighbourhood in my work. It’s made a big impression."
