Exhibition Dates: Friday, January 14 – Friday, February 11, 2022
Virtual Artist Talk – Saturday January 29th @ 1pm
In the exhibition ‘& I’m done with the woods’ Jonathan S. Green employs the use of historical and contemporary imagery from research in both texts and excursions into the landscape. The imagery reproduced in the body of work will appear ambiguous in scale, time, and purpose, and include mountains, forests, cabins, camps and fire – its presence and its effect. The cabin elements will provide a glimpse of human interaction in the natural world. How we have behaved and interacted in the landscape in the past while opening up new ideas for future interactions.
Jonathan S. Green is of Mi’kmaq and Inuit, and settler heritage from Labrador City, Newfoundland and Labrador. He does not know a lot about his Indigenous heritage but is trying to learn more. Green earned an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Alberta. He currently resides in Winnipeg, Manitoba – located on Treaty No. 1, the original lands of Anishinaabe, Ininiwak, Anishininiwak, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
His creative research investigates ideas around landscape and wilderness, bushcraft and survival, camping and shelter in the face of the climate crisis. Most recently, this has manifested in a reflection on the increased incidence of wildfires, particularly through his drawing and printmaking practice.
