Opening Reception: Thursday May 25, 7:30PM
Relations is a growing project by Jason Baerg that responds to the relationships we have with the Sun, the Moon, the Earth and ourselves. Using abstraction, repetition, pattern and flux in response to the history of portrait painting, this first iteration of the series focuses on our human connections. Through digital video projections and works on deer hide, Baerg has been expanding a library of portraits with the aim to have 360 unique sitters from the First Nations community. This exhibition will center on portraits from Brandon participants who have sent images to Baerg to use in the project, and a series of deer hide paintings based on these abstractions.
