Inspired by the book of Michel Jean on the heartbreaking story of First Nations children abduction from their villages, mistreatment in boarding schools and the path to healing years later. The tents villages still existed in the fifties in the beautiful forest. The planes mostly used were Bristol 170 freighters. The schools were isolated and desolate, therefore the black and white hues. Hope is a summer radiant scene with a reconciliation day logo. The first zipper remains open in the middle symbolizing the hole left by the rupture, the second one can be opened or closed to symbolize the coming and going in the steps for reconciliation.


Breakage, death and hope of reconciliation

  • Original watercolor, collage and zippers on wood.
