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 on display at the Grenfell Art Gallery, in Corner Brook, NL,  the Confederation Arts Centre in Charlottetown, PEI  , Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax, NS, The St FX Art Gallery in Antigonish, NS and the Rooms in St. John's, NL
