I had the chance to visit M's grade 8 class and make dystopian self portraits with them. We drew our faces on primed wood blocks, then glued found objects along the lines. To complete the portraits, we painted them. It was a good opportunity to meet the creative students who make up this class, and to see their amazing teacher in action.
I made a few paintings, all on top of eachother.
"I Hear the River", an acrylic painting on stretched canvas. This piece speaks of the restorative and ever changing beauty of nature. While drinking in the scene that inspired the painting, I thought upon the vast spaces we enjoy in Canada and our responsibility to approach the land and its resources with respect, gratitude, wisdom and generosity.
