Catherine Dallaire | Company: Catherine Dallaire Metis Art
“… if two different art styles can work together in harmony, so too can we find a way for different cultures and nature and technology to meet peacefully with each other.”
Everyone struggles with a universal question: Who am I? For many of us, it’s a life-long journey to find answers. And if we’re lucky, we find peace with being more than just one thing. Being of Metis heritage, Catherine has invested many years of her life reviving her indigenous culture and delving deeper into her ancestry to deepen her understanding of herself. Catherine’s artwork is a powerfully poetic representation of two seemingly contrasted elements – Woodland and contemporary realism techniques – coming together to create a beautiful new piece, with each element complementing the other. She strikes a beautiful balance between the many shades of herself, while sending a greater message.
Catherine’s art is a reminder that we never have to be one thing, or feel like mismatched parts of different wholes. Being different means that we are able to offer something the world has never seen before. And at Altekrea, there is always a home for the alternative.
We’re excited to have Catherine Dallaire joining us as one of Altekrea’s artists at the festival this summer, June 17-19.
