Tukien (Awaken)

The work is a representation of indigenous peoples from an indigenous perspective. Sometimes that representation includes specific, identifiable symbols and sometimes it does not - because the figures within the paintings define their culture on their own terms and what it means to be native today in a contemporary setting. This series was ondisplay at the Grenfell Art Gallery, in Corner Brook, NL, in May 2020 and at the Confedertion Arts Centre in Charlottetown, PEI in Oct. 2020. It  will be at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia beginning October 2021
