08. Ancient Retrievals; Wood Buffalo Park, Alberta, Canada
4’ x 4’ recycled wood panel, sawed rounds of forested wood, acrylic
In this painting ancient Neolithic and Canadian imagery references integrate; where wild buffalo once roamed is now a stationary reference to a limited area, Wood Buffalo Park. The central circle echoes Neolithic life giving symbols even perhaps the shrine grave. Levels of polyvalent interpretation emerge from imagery juxtapositions. The bear foot marks amidst the luminous blue are reminiscent of the grand aurora of northern skies yet the beauty of its luminosity emits an almost ominous glow. Bear tracks circle the buffalo; illustrating the matter of time. The birch tree is painted in acrylic; the tree ends are sawed off circles of forest wood.
