Condition: No condition noted.
Description by Artist: ‘Crosswalk’ – For Susan Point, many of her earliest childhood memories are linked to the natural world. Growing up on the Musqueam Reserve in Vancouver, surrounded by nature on the shores of the Fraser River she learned much from her elders who emphasized the people’s relationship to the earth. “I could see this connection clearly in my daily life,” she recalls. “My own understanding of this relationship has been best illustrated through the image of the frog — the ‘canary in the coal mine’, reflecting the cost of our actions on the surrounding world.”
Those early memories provided a foundation, the magical first steps on a journey toward an understanding of society’s relationship to the earth. “The area that I grew up in has changed so quickly,” Susan admits. “I fear there will be nothing left for my grandchildren — all that will be left are crosswalks.”
