“As we begin to discover more remains, the dark truth of Canada’s history is coming to the surface. Now, more than ever, we as indigenous peoples need our fellow Canadian’s compassion and empathy to move forward and heal.” - Rande Cook
Part of a series of works that consist of Cook's photographs of marble sculptures overlaid with graphite, pastels, and paint. The result is highly evocative: Western European art layered with Kwakwaka’wakw emotion.
