Artists often explore many mediums within their own practice creating works of art that are embedded with a narrative that can be invisible to the viewer. It is a redefined look at their world retold in a unique way that creates a personal myth. Ideas and symbolic representation evolve as does the medium developing further creativity.  

Alex Janiver, one of Canada’s most prominent Native artists once said: Art is not a substitute for oral story telling but another way to describe reality. It is a way of speaking to the public in my own language to convey what’s inside my spirit.

Artists using a strong narrative often focus on a particular subject or idea. Artists use the power of visual language to ignite imagination, evoke emotions and to explore their own truths in a very individual way.

A stage is set for a personal narrative inviting an audience to fall into the piece and find their own meaning to explore the ideas that have evolved as the work has appeared.
