Ink and embroidery on raw canvas, 2021

46 cm (diamètre)
Conceived during a creative residency at Centre Est-Nord-Est, this work is inspired by the boreal flora observed in the Charlevoix and Côte-Nord regions. The ink drawing is enhanced with coloured embroidery. We can see different types of lichen, Labrador tea, and cloudberry.
