Prayers from the Earth.

These paintings are created using the iconography of my people the Nlaka’pamux, this canvas represents a face painted with a prayer. Using materials collected and harvested from the land, I am using medicine from the earth for the earth and all that is. These materials include Red and Yellow Ochre collected from through out the interior of BC. The black is created by charing coyote and deer bones and small sprinkle of devils club which is ground up. These earth pigments are then mixed with linseed oil and used alongside conventional oil paints.

 

Each canvas represents a face.

 

 Many time our rock pictographs, tattooing, face and body paintings were prayers or medicine for the wearer, these paintings take after this practice. They are painted for healing.
