FRIDAY, JULY 8TH , 2016
NEW EXHIBIT OF ORIGINAL PAINTINGS BY FIRST NATIONS ARTIST MELINDA SHANK-MILES
ABOUT THE ARTIST...
Melinda Shank-Miles currently resides in Hamilton, Ontario. She is a proud member of the Mattawa/North Bay Algonquin First Nation. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts at McMaster University in Hamilton and completed additional studies in art at the Dundas Valley School of Art and at Redeemer University in Ancaster.
Melinda draws influence through history, culture and organic form, figures and texture. She is inspired by her Algonquin ancestry, a long-untold story of deep roots hidden in a modern world and ancient bloodlines tied to the earth. Her paintings show the duality of the untamed wilderness, vibrant, organic colours and the interference of man-made structures along with the effects of pollution, violence and destruction. Each canvas represents an illustrated story revealed to her in her personal exploration of origins. The result is a colourful series of images from Anishinaabe Algonquin history and culture, combining elements of traditional First Nations linework with the artist's own visual interpretation of her inner journey in a contemporary style.
