|Jason Carter, "Wolf", acrylic on canvas|
Jason Carter, one of Alberta’s most prolific aboriginal artists, delightfully explores this constant dialogue of urban versus the natural environment through a vibrant series of paintings. Six animals, indigenous to Alberta, are shown in three different environments, showing their resilience and ability to adapt to an ever-evolving world.
Urban Animals was curated by Bridget Ryan and Janet Sinclair-Gibson, as part of the Alberta Foundation for the Art's Traveling Exhibition Program (organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and sponsored by Syncrude Canada).
