"Rhude's portrait of a cod fish, Post Cod (2016) becomes a sort of universal self portrait, a portrait of not only a dying industry, but a portrait of the murderer, as the figure looming in the cod's dead eye warns of a bleak future."

Sarah Fillmore, Chief Curator, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Terroir, A Nova Scotia Survey
