    The Collection:

    I went through a personal exploration into Canadian identity and art. Influenced by one of my favourite artists, I set about rediscovering works by the Group of Seven, who have particularly shaped the way Canadians view and interpret their country. Specific pieces I was drawn to were “Afternoon Sun Lake Superior” by Lawren Harris, and “Patterned Hillside” by Franklin H Johnston.

    Further inspired by the works of photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, I used Google Maps to find the location that Harris painted his work of art, and took a portion of that area to create the base for the print.The depths of the lake were used as points of difference and value. I then took colours directly from Johnston’s piece to give a fresh life to the new print. 

    The result is a repeat that can be regarded as grains in a piece of wood, flecks of paint in an oil painting, or the varied textures in a piece of marble. I really enjoy the outcome as it feels ambiguous - like camouflage - which echoes the idea around identity exploration. Whether used as a tool to hide or be exposed; it is entirely up to the viewer, as well as the person wearing the pattern.
