Walked and dug through like 4 feet of snow and ice on Saturday shooting this, cannot wait to be able to shoot outdoors without having to deal with this trash weather. Just know that if you make art consistently indoors, I'm pretty jealous of that haha 😅
How many of you also create art/content in general? Comment below and or tag me in some posts of yours if you'd like me to check out your work, always looking for inspiration or new artists to follow/support! 😊 If you're interested in buying prints of my work, check the link in my bio 🔌cheers everyone!
One of my very first pieces sooo 2015 I believe. 🤔 I found this massive four foot disc half buried in the dirt and snow. I had to wait til Spring to dig it out. 🐿 I went once a week. I finally pried it loose in victory 💃🏻 and had no hot clue what I was going to do but I WANTED it so bad. It is rusted and peppered with buckshot. 💥 'Perspective' is now available at @warehouseartworks for one week only along with the mesmerizing works of @spirited_design_ Don't miss it.
In the lead up to the Benjamin Chee Chee: Life and Legacy exhibition, every Tuesday, we have been sharing a series of posts including sneak peeks of artworks that will be part of the exhibition, photos of Benjamin, as well as contributions of those who knew him. To honour Benjamin Chee Chee's Ojibwe culture, each Tuesday's post has been aligned with one of the Seven Grandfather Teachings.
For the last Tuesday of the series, we are sharing this photograph of Benjamin that was printed as part of a newspaper article in Tawow, a quarterly publication produced by what is now Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada.
The final of the Seven Grandfather teachings to be covered is wisdom. There have been many who have played a significant role in the progression of this project and it is this collective wisdom that have brought what started as an idea into fruition. We at TAG will need to continue to seek the wisdom of others to ensure we are moving forward in a good way as the exhibition and programming moves forward.
Miigwetch (thank you!) to Ernie Bies, a friend of Benjamin's for providing this image as well as all of the other valued contributions he has made to this project.
One last exciting thought, as this is the last of our seven postings leading up to the exhibition, next Monday (February 26) is the official opening of the exhibition. The Opening Reception will be help on March 4, from 1-4 pm.
Been MIA this long weekend eating Chinese food 🍚 and sitting on the couch (actually, eating Chinese food and working hard on exciting new Partial updates, but I digress). We love how these abstracts were hung horizontally to fit this living room! Abstracts can be so very versatile. Art by Sook Chang. #streetcardevelopments#sookchang
