Painting is a sacred bundle that echoes through ancestral time,
carry it responsibly and make a meaningful contribution to it.

The journey through twenty-five years of caring for drawing and painting has found innovative pathways through the conceptual and formal approaches of Cree Métis visual artist, Jason Baerg.

Kisci-Okima-Achak, 2014 | Acrylic on Laser Cut Steel

As a first generation new media artist, Baerg has forged fearlessly towards unique ways of utilizing emergent 2D, 3D, interactive, immersive, and fabrication technologies.  The dynamic of his first UK solo exhibition charts key contributions of his artistic practice, which include: interactive immersive generative media projection pieces and laser cut painting installations, both of which are some of the first produced and presented anywhere in the world.

Baerg’s artistic investigation has rigorously explored themes such as community, ritual, urban migration, Cree cosmology, native relationality, survivance, an Indigenized Anthropocene, language revitalization, and Indigenous Futurisms.

The exhibition is a partnership with the Woodland Cultural Centre, an institution that serves to preserve and promote Indigenous history, art, language and culture, focusing on the story of the Haudenosaunee people of the Eastern Woodlands.
