Toured through OSAC’s Arts on the Move program, “The Flower People” is a story about the artist, her family, her people and their connection and relationship to the land, themselves, and each other. It is derived from the name ‘The Flower Beadwork People’ a name given to the Métis who are well known for their floral beadwork.
Felted pieces, combined with the use of collected blankets create a canvas for the artist’s personal exploration of identity as a contemporary Indigenous Artist, alongside her Ukrainian heritage. Her floral imagery invokes stories of people, place, and the land. Personal, cultural, and universal symbolism are woven into the fabric of her work with an emphasis on movement, colour, and narrative.
