Bridgeman’s acute sense of isolation during the onset of winter at the foot of the Rocky Mountains was amplified by the impassive nature of the locals who regarded the interloper with guarded cordiality and called him “Blacky”. Bridgeman responded by gathering a collection of objects painted in lurid colours, then stepping into character as his muse, his toy golliwog, stating “I gave in to being the best outsider that I could become”. The resultant work is an explosion of colour, movement and creative expression, a powerful representation of an artist In the Project.
