Project Description

Rupertsland Ruckus

Rupertsland Ruckus is a collection of large scale contemporary history paintings and mixed media sculptures that explore the enduring impact of the legacies wrought through the fur trade, colonization, expansionism and industrialization in Manitoba. The work is focused on a reinterpretation and amalgamation of these stories with varying contemporary perspectives of Canadian history and identity.

The histories are interwoven with satire, folklore, mythology, classical allegory and social commentary to question how mainstream society and nations collect, select, qualify and represent history.
