The Feast of the Seven Fishes, 2017

In 2017, I started incorporating beading into sculptural works. The resulting series of fishes reflects my personal study of the Mediterranean Sea and Italian lace-making, combined with a long-standing interest in beadwork. Materials are central to this series. Copper was selected for its conductive properties to form the skeleton of each work. Even though the armatures are completely encased in glass beads, the copper structure adds lucidity, buoyancy and energy. There are unique technical aspects to this work in that traditional beading methods were combined with an Italian lacemaking technique called “threading on air” which allowed me to sew the beads onto the copper armature.

In this series of work I’m exploring Métis identity and aesthetic sovereignty. I’m looking at the works of many contemporary Métis artists including Christi Belcourt and David Garneau as I work on this series. Other reference materials include photographs and archives of the Métis from the Fisherton, MB area.
