This January through March we are pleased to present this installation artwork ‘Buffalo Corral’ by Metis artist Heather Shillinglaw. The panorama image of an industrial landscape is created by interconnected doors to form a corral within the gallery, inside this corral the artist has rendered an alternative forest landscape populated by Metis and Cree individuals whom have influenced Heather and her creative process. This complex personal narrative portrayed within the corral is starkly juxtaposed against the polluted environment which surrounds the forest oasis, asking viewers to consider the impact we have on history and on our environment.
