Entwined, cedar bark, hemlock, red alder and madder hand dyed wool, dimensions variable. 2009
Entwined, explores the interconnectedness of Stanley Park’s ecology, and how the different uses, experiences and perspectives of both indigenous and non-indigenous people, plants and materials are interwoven. Referencing native-plant and material usage in the plaiting of cedar and in the dyes created from hemlock and red alder barks as well as the oyster shell buttons, this work is a meditation on the Cedar as a tree of life and asks this cedar to share it’s story.
