Listening to the Land
‘Listening to the Land‘ by First Nations Dene artist John Rombough – Original Dene Art style painting presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts
Condition: No condition noted.
Description by Artist: ‘Listening to the Land‘ – The Ancestors are calling out to the Land and Water Spirits celebrating in welcoming the Spring Season. Two grey jays ask the Ancestors for fresh water in lakes and streams. The treeline and rolling hills capture the spirit within.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: This is a new playful, colourful, and very active style that John has been practicing using from 22 to 23 different colours and shades in this painting. One is drawn into this world of detail and movement of this fascinating painting. He was thinking of no longer using this style as it actually takes him at least 1.5 times more time and effort than his well-known style.
John’s background and community is Chipewyan Dene.
