The works of Jenine Marsh (b. 1984, Calgary), Daniel Rios Rodriguez (b. 1978, Killeen), Gabrielle L’Hirondelle Hill (b. 1979, Comox) and Ektor Garcia (b. 1985, Red Bluff) iterate natural agencies through material and symbol.

Whether by rubberizing a flower’s posture, preserving its aliveness, or evoking ribbed, forest floors with ceramic, woven wire and leather; by incanting ‘spells’ through collage, or forming pictures of the sky with sculpture, these practices, in concert, discourse on the spiritual act of awing at nature and the celestial.
