The oldest creatures of the earth originated in the oceans. We came from water…
Evoking deep time and a shared imagination of ancient environments, this large-scale visual spectacle questioned reality and conjured ideas about the secret worlds and histories that connect us all. This body of work was a collaboration among prairie artists living on the ancient sea bed of the Western Interior Seaway and maritime artists living next to the North Atlantic Ocean. Similar to transformation processes found in nature, the collective artwork evolved in response to each other and its environments.
Featuring artwork by: Aralia Maxwell, Cynthia Blanchette, Alexa Hainsworth, Tamara Rusnak, Chloe Kinsella, and Arianna Richardson.
Special thanks to the Saskatchewan Arts Board for their funding and support of this project.
