1: Introduction The following portfolio gives a general summary of works created during my BFA studies. The included art pieces consist of school assignments along with some work done at Emily Carr through the continuing studies program. A few other significant projects that were created during my university years outside of school assignments are also included. These pieces outline four years of in depth exploration in many areas and techniques that were entirely new to me. The resulting pieces reveal exploration, technique development, and the pleasure I have experienced in my art early practice.

64: “People just, you know, if you were in uniform, even if you’re doing the most mundane thing, you’re like a hero or something. But it was a wonderful feeling.” - Richard Dudley "Dick" Clements - | Works in Exhibition

65: These words were spoken by Richard Dudley Clements; a man in uniform who was in Ardrasson, Scotland, on Victory in Europe Day. He was a naval stores keeper during the war although he had originally volunteered as a boy seaman. However, when he applied, the position was no longer available, so he was given two choices: he could go home or stay and do stores training. Although perhaps not as exciting as being a seaman, Clements stayed to train so that he could do his part. To clarify, Clements’ stores keeping duty involved keeping inventory of naval stores (“nuts, bolts, things like that...”) and “victualing” which is inventory and distribution of food. He never directly participated in battle. But despite his seemingly mundane duty, I would argue that Richard Clements is a hero. This is the concept that inspired my artwork. I admit, with the long list of veterans whose stories I had chosen to read through, I was opting for the more exciting stories: ones of trench fighting, shrapnel wounds, and demonstrations of outstanding bravery. The accounts of naval stores, mechanics, and radar operators were the first to be crossed off my list. But this man’s words put me to shame. I neglected to recognize the people who worked behind the scenes; the people whose job was to make sure that those on the front lines could continue to do their job. Even those who never experienced physical battle were fighting a war. And they too are heroes. Everyone was fighting in this war. From the prayer-driven, war bond-buying mothers back on Canadian soil to the bloodiest infantry man on the Eastern Front. These men, the stores keepers, cooks, stewards, signallers, engineers, radar operators, doctors – the list goes on – each held just as much importance as the soldiers on the front line and the fighters in the air. I believe that too | often these “behind the scenes” soldiers are forgotten and their stories are not heard and cherished because of their “minimal” role in the war. Their title, duty, or rank does not lessen their importance in the role they played. All contributed, all are equally important, and all are worthy of recognition. I created this piece in the style of a World War II poster. I believe it is an appropriate way to honour all those who contributed to the war effort, specifically to those whose stories are shrugged off as lesser contributions. This is my salute to you, Richard Clements, and to all you Behind the Scenes Soldiers and veterans of World War II: Our unsung heroes. Jenessa Galmut
