Earlier this year, I was invited along with 36 artists  in Alberta and Saskatchewan to participate in the inaugural “Cenovus Art Competition“. The focus of the competition was to identify “under-recognized artists” in Alberta and Saskatchewan, in the form of a competition. Normally, I don’t go in for these sort of things, but I liked what the company was proposing to do.

For too long, many of us “older” artists have tired to see big art competitions such as the Sobey Award and the RBC Art Competition in Canada focus on the “young”…the “up and coming”. If you’re under 40 or a recent grad – there’s big bucks in art competitions in Canada. Kind of makes this senior feel like dog food at times, to tell the truth. I’m thankful Cenovus looked at meritous working artists. And I’m super excited that local colleagues David Foxcroft and Michael Cameron were recognized as “honourable mentions”!

It was nice to be recognized for not being recognized, and then recognized. Ha. Odd…but true.

Some of my strongest pieces were too large for the specs in the competition, so the difficult task I had was to find something I felt worthy of my current practice, beliefs and thoughts as an artist. Coming off the CAMP exhibition (my first ever solo public exhibition) at Okotoks Art Gallery, I chose “Spirit Horse Lodges” for my entry into the competition.

Artist Statement – Spirit Horse Lodges

“Title: Spirit Horse Lodges
Dimensions: 40”x72”x2.25”
Medium: Oil on linen

No artist worth their salt can engage in deep research and subject matter from a distance. They must be immersed, involved and see themselves as part of the work, the place and the spirit. My practice focuses with all of my soul, my heart and my emotion, on cross-cultural relationships and “the space between” .

With an eye to the objective – the representational, but with a paintbrush filled with movement, spiritual guidance and immersion, I created “Spirit Horse Lodges” which describes the three aspects of our Human existance – the real, (the touchable), the spiritual and most importantly the Supernatural – the space in between. As a tipi holder, having spent many starlit and stormy nights in Siksika under the cover of the tipi canvas, the tipi comes to represent our house, our body, the natural and the spirit world. The stories and songs interwoven with the experience of being in and of the tipi are sacred. They come alive when spoken and told in front of the fire, with an energy that draws us all together and creates meaning in our lives.

Spirit Horse Lodges symbolizes our human link to community, four tipis representing the turns of the medicine wheel, the seasons, and the periods of our lives. The red ochre, a sacred colour carries the significance of fire and life as just two of their many meanings. The running horses, some “real” and actual part of the design of the tipi, take on a spirit, energy connection as they leap from one lodge to another, signifying our connection to each other in community and to the supernatural’s and spirit world. The horses (Ponoka-mitaa) themselves, a social and spiritual partner to humans, illustrate in all their different colours and moods – who and how we can be, together.”

I hear from the company, that a great deal of discussion took place around my work. This pleases me immensely, as at the core of what I do and why I paint is to question….to create dialogue and span those spaces “in-between”.

_________________________________________________________

While my piece did not win the glory and the much-coveted publicity of the award, there was some sweet victory for me in knowing that the discussions around the topic of the work were had, AND….Cenovus went wayyyy beyond the competition and purchased the work for their corporate collection. This is testimony enough for me that the right pieces end up in the right places. I’m excited! Not only that, it helps to support our family through some very difficult times – spiritually and financially.

May you always take a step outside your comfort zone to explore new territory.

Works in my studio to be delivered to OAG for CAMP

This has been a wild and wooly month. After being diagnosed with breast cancer just before Christmas, we’ve had a roller coaster of emotion and action in the household, combining doctor’s visits, show openings, Leighton Colony residencies, tests and surgery. On Monday, January 21st, just a week ago – I had a modified radical mastectomy to remove my right breast and the Level 1 and 2 lymph nodes under my right arm, which also showed metastatic breast cancer. In a few weeks, I’ll have treatments to get on with, to heal and make myself well again. My goal is to return to my studio at The Banff Centre by February 4th, which is ambitious but attainable.

The same time I found out that I had breast cancer, I was also scheduled for a two month heavenly residency at the Leighton Artist’s Colony at The Banff Centre, in my favourite studio – the Gerin-Lajoie. The project of this residency was to develop some major works out of my residency and time in Haida Gwaii. Time is a pinch point for me now…I also had my first solo public gallery exhibition opening at Okotoks Art Gallery!….and another in Haida Gwaii at the end of February.

As the saying goes, “Something’s gotta give.” Blog updates have been the first thing to go through this crazy month…but today I’m back at the computer writing, and playing “catchup” with all the news….between healthy sleeps, healing and pain medication.

My first priority of course, was my health, followed by a quick decision to get all of the work for the CAMP show down to Okotoks. The staff at the gallery did an incredible job curating and hanging the work, and none of it would have happened without the support of Kevin and our family. It was an exhilarating experience to see two year’s of research and work leave the studio in Canmore and take a different form in Okotoks.

What first appeared to me to be a mish-mash of thought and style emerged as a wondrous and elegant exhibition in the hands of the curatorial staff at the OAG. I’m very grateful for their care and understanding of the work and the difficult time we were going through.  We were blessed that my adopted father, Elder Tom Crane Bear, opened the exhibition with a smudge and prayer. I felt very loved and cared for in the midst of all the emotional and health turmoil invading my body. My family, friends and colleagues are amazing and deserve full credit for the success of this work. I’m so grateful to have such a supportive community. Sookapi!

The exhibition hangs at the Okotoks Art Gallery until February 23rd, so be sure to make a visit to see this culmination of works, so relevant to our current times as we all struggle with the use of resources, temporary claim to land and space and culture. Our Canadian identity is becoming more defined as each day passes with the Idle No More Movement, and I’m so proud of my family in both cultures.

The show must go on, and we must dialogue, work together with respect and find common ground for success.

 

Prolific? Perfection? :: What does that mean for artists?

How Much and How Good?

From September 10th – October 26th, 2012, I was a BAIR (Banff Artist In Residence) at The Banff Centre. During that time, I had access to incredible facilities, perfect studio space and the valuable interaction with other artists from all over the world.

Detail – Sketch – Bag Harbour, Gwaii Haanas National Park, Haida Gwaii.

I was focussed on starting to work through my research Gwaii Haanas National Park & Haida Heritage Site Artist in Residence. Things don’t always go as smoothly as one would wish. Delayed by a week getting into the residency because of an encounter with a deer earlier in the summer, our vehicles weren’t available. It was frustrating to want to “get at it”.

Just a few days after moving into the studio in Banff, due to extenuating circumstances, the Artists In Gwaii Haanas exhibition was going to be moved to late February. Originally, it was to open November 9th. Needless to say, this also caused a bit of stress and mental panic, as my well-laid plans were to work on Haida Museum exhibition first, and then move along to polish works for the CAMP show at OAG in early January, 2013, also hoping to include some of the work for Haida Gwaii in the CAMP show. Ey yi yi……now, while it looked on the outside as easier with more time, in fact, I had less time and more pieces to create! I also had to cancel plans I was making to attend a Master Class with the incredible Bo Bartlett at the incomparable Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts that would land in the last quarter of the Banff residency. Dang it – well, I’ll catch up with Bo another time. Priorities! Yes, I was disappointed in myself and the circumstances, but there’s only so much that’s physically possible.

“Downed Tree” – Sketch Detail: Bag Harbour, Gwaii Haanas National Park, Haida Gwaii.

Mentally, I think that was the button that put me into high gear, but sideswiped “plans” for works I wanted to create. This has an upside in that with shorter time, I didn’t have as much time to THINK too much and let that get in the way of the painting. After all, what I had really hoped for was some incredible time to experiment and explore as a painter. In the end, that happened anyhow. I did the largest, most expressive piece I’ve ever painted, now powerfully throwing out it’s energy in our living/dining room, waiting the final work on the figure.

Throw in two studio tours in that short period of time, and you have either an experimental recipe for disaster, divorce, high creativity or all the above.

I’ll let you off the hook and say that it was the high creativity that ended up working for me. Thank goodness – Kevin and the kids really were great at supporting the long nights, early mornings, laundry and household chores, although there was a lot of Subway meals going on. The only disaster that happened was the earthquake over the weekend in Haida Gwaii. Yikes.

I was a bit oblivious to what I was doing, I have to admit. Shutting pretty much everyone and everything out, I think I just became a painting, sketching machine. I didn’t realize it until several people that I really respect as artists and critics, on different occasions remarked at how incredibly prolific I was.

I still don’t see it – I admit hoping for more. 

While not everything is fully finished, here is the “count” which doesn’t fully quantify the intrinsic value of the residency for me, but sure does point to some kind of weird prolific production tendencies and desires, given the time and space of only 33 days. I think it’s good to step back and analyze your ability to produce work in some form. Maybe I need to give myself a break! Taking ten days now to totally rest and visit family and friends in Ontario….if I can get in through Hurricane Sandy.

7 Grandfathers, 7 Weeks, #7 Studio, 7 Paintings : What Obliteration Could Do For You

Lucky Studio 7 - Glyde Hall

The Clarity of Studio 7 – Glyde Hall, The Banff Centre

I’m always excited by the whiteness of a vast canvas. With nothing suggested, it becomes the means by which thoughts and directions can begin to have a life of their own and manifest. There is space for something to be born into.

Extrapolating that same brilliant white canvas into a three dimensional, fresh, white blank studio space is sometimes just what the doctor ordered. A space devoid of old work, piles of papers and the collections of years of work, even if it’s well set up, can cause creativity fatigue. Much like a mind cluttered with the happenings of the day, there is no space for creation. No room for ideas to manifest. No clarity possible. No hope when stuff just builds up.

“Art Is The Proper Task of Life.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Today, I got the keys to a new space – Studio #7 at The Banff Centre where I’ll be working on seven complex paintings for the next seven weeks for the Gwaii Haanas and final CAMP exhibitions. I’ve had them brewing in my mind, but they were not yet crystal clear. I’ll admit I’ve been excited about embarking on the challenge, but also challenged…by the creative challenge itself. Today, when the doors opened into whiteness with a few old pieces of furniture, it was akin to a deep meditation that allowed me to see things differently and to focus my thoughts for the upcoming residency. It was fast – within a half an hour of just sitting within the white walls of the studio, I could actually SEE what the paintings were going to be, my angst disappeared and the solutions presented themselves.

Working on some complex issues with education and the arts over the past week has been exhausting and a big learning curve – lots of new information peppered with high emotions on all sides. People are fearful of change and upsetting the status quo. Filtering through the rhetoric, politics and individual agendas has been like taking some whitewash to an old fence and wiping away the dirt. There’s a lot of dirt on THAT fence, but it’s clear to me that there are solutions when you scrub hard enough. Some folks don’t like me scrubbing that hard, but I’m determined to ensure there is success. Solutions like this require everyone coming to the table with an honest desire to make things better for the future – laying aside party politics and jurisdiction in order to truly innovate in a clean space. Find that creative solution to the blank canvas of complexity.

It’s the same when you create a painting – you follow and act according to the Seven Grandfather Teachings of the Anishnabe.

Wisdom, Love, Respect, Bravery, Honesty, Humility, Truth

The Seven Grandfather Teachings

“The Seven Grandfather Teachings” ©Janice Tanton. 2008. Oil on canvas. 8″x24″

  • Nibwaakaawin—Wisdom: To cherish knowledge is to know Wisdom. Wisdom is given by the Creator to be used for the good of the people. In the Anishnabe language, this word expresses not only “wisdom,” but also means “prudence,” or “intelligence.” In some communities, Gikendaasowin is used; in addition to “wisdom,” this word can also mean “intelligence” or “knowledge.”
  • Zaagi’idiwin—Love: To know Love is to know peace. Love must be unconditional. When people are weak they need love the most. In the Anishinaabe language, this word with the reciprocal theme /idi/ indicates that this form of love is mutual. In some communities, Gizhaawenidiwin is used, which in most context means “jealousy” but in this context is translated as either “love” or “zeal”. Again, the reciprocal theme /idi/ indicates that this form of love is mutual.
  • Minaadendamowin—Respect: To honor all creation is to have Respect. All of creation should be treated with respect. You must give respect if you wish to be respected. Some communities instead use Ozhibwaadenindiwin or Manazoonidiwin.
  • Aakode’ewin—Bravery: Bravery is to face the foe with integrity. In the Anishinaabe language, this word literally means “state of having a fearless heart.” To do what is right even when the consequences are unpleasant. Some communities instead use eitherZoongadikiwin (“state of having a strong casing”) or Zoongide’ewin (“state of having a strong heart”).
  • Gwayakwaadiziwin—Honesty: Honesty in facing a situation is to be brave. Always be honest in word and action. Be honest first with yourself, and you will more easily be able to be honest with others. In the Anishinaabe language, this word can also mean “righteousness.”
  • Dabaadendiziwin—Humility: Humility is to know yourself as a sacred part of Creation. In the Anishinaabe language, this word can also mean “compassion.” You are equal to others, but you are not better. Some communities instead express this withBekaadiziwin, which in addition to “humility” can also be translated as “calmness,” “meekness,” “gentility” or “patience.”
  • Debwewin—Truth: Truth is to know all of these things. Speak the truth. Do not deceive yourself or others.

By Land and By Sea :: Artists in Haida Gwaii – Gwaii Haanas National Park

I’ve had a few folks, including my astonished family, ask just exactly where it is that I’m going for this amazing artist’s residency. Here’s what looks like will be an overview of my journey in the upcoming month. I’m planning to drive from Canmore to Prince Rupert, BC and then take the ferry from Prince Rupert to Skidegate. From that point, the residency begins, although I know that there are many stops along the way there and back that are going to be of great interest to me!

Connecting – Just One Reason Why Art Matters

Art Matters. It has a way of creating bonds between human beings that is beyond words. On those rare occasions when it happens with impact, it’s a soul-filling experience for everyone.

Sometimes it’s just not possible or desirable when you’re dealing through an agent  but a great gallery will foster a brilliant three-way relationship. With the middle man, you’re one step removed  from the relationship. Those new adoptive parents of that baby you’ve spent months nurturing, growing and creating are just a little bit further away.

Like all great parents, you raise those babies right so they go out and stand on their own. You send them off into the world not always knowing where they’ll end up. It’s a great privilege to know when they’ve found a new home where they’re cared for, loved and cherished…and it’s lovely to know where they live.

I care that the collector has as much information about my process in creating the work, the thought and materials that go into it, and the person that created it. That’s more than 80% of the reason why I write this blog..the other 20% is obviously therapy. Ha. Giving that back-story makes it all somehow more relevant from my point of view.  There are special moments and connections that I cherish.

About five years ago, I was out painting at Spray Lake, and while I was working on the piece, my family was playing on the shore of the lake – a large family gathered at the point near my painting location, and their lives literally walked into the painting and into ours.

Their purpose that day was to honour the life of a husband, a grandfather…a father. They spent awhile on the point in service and then scattered his ashes. That’s a moment in my painting life that I will never forget. I painted all of that in – I was suddenly a part of all of their lives and this event. When a young girl from the family wandered down to see what I was doing, she told me that it was her grandfather, and that this had been his favourite place on the planet. It’s pretty much one of our favourite places on the planet too. I finished the work, gave it to her and asked that she give it to her grandma. A few weeks later, I received the most beautiful note from the family but more importantly, it was the day and the connectivity through art to life and death that mattered.

The New Parents

Jeff with the newest addition to his collection.

Last weekend, Kevin and I were thrilled to connect again with Jeff Kovitz, who chose “CAMP :: Lodge Series – “All Family Lodges” to grace his residence.

Jeff had been searching for six years to find a piece that fit into his collection in a certain spot in his home, and was struck by the image of this work in progress that I’d posted on Facebook. That’s an early stage to feel those heartstrings pull. Six weeks later, when the painting was completed, I sent Jeff a jpeg of it. He wasn’t sure that it had “grown up” to be the piece for the two spots he thought it would work so we thought it would be worthwhile to at least try it out in the space and see.

Delivering the piece over to the house to see if it was a fit, my son Jacob and I were in for a treat as Jeff so graciously toured us through his home and introduced us to his magnificent collection and his lovely daughter Jodi who was visiting.

I knew Jeff as a friend and a colleague from his role as the Chair of the Board of Governors of The Banff Centre when I worked there as Program Manager for Aboriginal Leadership. We’d had occasion to have lunch together after he learned of The Community Fusion project and he graciously opened the film and exhibition for the project on it’s launch.

Jeff ‘s enthusiasm and care for artists, the artistic process and the state of the world is evident in his support of every facet of disciplinary study in the arts, and we’re grateful to know him. His love for the arts is evident, not only in his service and leadership capacity but in the beautiful and superbly self-curated works that hang in his residence, from the thoughtfully situated sculptures… to the music  by the invisible piano player on a wondrous grand (player) piano that plays magically throughout his home – a work of art in itself. Every piece has a story and a provenance.

This ….is art-full living!

Burrowing Owl Pinot Noir in Janice Tanton's studio

We so enjoyed this wine together in the studio.

Holding up the painting in the selected spot, I think we were all surprised at how well it fit – that it belonged right there in that very spot – no other home…no other place. If I had tried to create a work specifically for the placement, I’m not certain that I would have been successful – it was somehow meant deep-down for Jeff. Art finds it’s own way. My baby had found it’s place in the world and I’ve extended my family.

Kevin and I hung the painting for Jeff. It was the first time that we’d ever done this together and it was a special experience for both of us. There were a few laughs along the way, that’s for sure! Kevin makes the stretchers and stretches the linen for me so it was fitting for him and meaningful for us both to be a part of the final process of seeing it where it belonged. To celebrate the work, Jeff gave us a lovely bottle of wine. We enjoyed it together in the studio that evening, toasting our baby into the world and wishing well to those who would encounter it as well as it’s new caretaker. I have to say that I am truly more pleased that this piece is with our friend who has it, than I am that the painting has been sold. It’s good to know and serves my heart well.

The Relationship of Art To Life To Art To Life…

"Lie To Me"

"Lie To Me" ©2010 Janice Tanton. Oil on linen. 40"x60"

This is what I love so much about art and it’s many forms – there are relationships everywhere. I have a relationship with the work as I think about it, watch it become reality before my eyes and create it. There are times when I can look at a piece that I’ve done, and remember the conversations I had, the meals, the music I listened to and the times and events in my life while I worked on it – those are the stories that are embedded in the work. For instance, the work above, “Lie To Me” was created while listening to Jonny Lang‘s music and named for the same song, “Lie To Me”. His music inspired me and by a freak chance (or perhaps NOT such a freak chance…) we met Jonny and his backup singer Jason Eskridge and had the opportunity to share a coffee and talk about the painting, the song and the connectivity between artforms.

I have a lovely client now who was so moved by this work, that she’s commissioned a similar piece…and I’m thrilled to work with her, because it’s the relationships that I know will grow as she sits for this work that will matter.

There is a relationship now with the experience we had while placing the work with Jeff, and there will be new relationships formed for him while it lives in his home. Art connects us and creates space for new experiences and dialogue. This is the true value of a work, whether it is a piece of theatre, music, writing, sculpture, dance or a painting that somehow moves us.

Oh yes. Art Matters.
