Humility Home Art Collection, details, 2014.

For 10 months of the year, for two years, I taught in a fly-in community in the subarctic of Ontario, Canada. My internet connection was my line to the south and the only one to the fine art world globally. I enjoyed being close to the land in the way you are in the community I lived in the north and appreciated the difficulties. What is now called the Humility Home Art Collection, started on reserve my last year there and was completed a year or two after my return to the south. I appropriated images from the internet and from the art world on the internet and painted them in oils.
