Leah Dorion: Dancing The Earth


Leah Dorion: Dancing The Earth

Art Gallery of St. Albert, St. Albert, AB - Oct 6 – Nov 10

by Robin Laurance

Leah Dorion’s vibrantly coloured and intricately patterned artworks evoke beading and embroidery, honouring “the sacred feminine” and “the spiritual strength” of her female ancestors. A Métis artist and storyteller, Dorion incorporates shells, birchbark, river rocks and mica fl akes into her paintings, adding elements of tactility to her visual imagery. In her artist’s statement, she declares that her new work “celebrates the beauty of the earth” and the energy abounding in “this great circle of life.”
