Part of the Story

Found Western Art History texts and textbooks, latex paint, 2019-ongoing.

Western Art History texts in Canada taught in Art Classrooms, reflect histories that create a narrative, and timeline, from ancient art, Roman, Egyptian, selected European artists, to Modern and Contemporary North America. Students miss out on the stories of lives lived and world cultures, and those reflected in our classrooms. Another approach to study art and art history is needed. I paint shapes over text and images guided by the book's grid system design in Art History texts to establish only Part of the Story is being told.

This project includes 6 Art History texts so far and text books, and is ongoing.
