What do sea otters, polar bears, and caribou have in common besides four legs and fur? They are all listed as threatened or endangered on the Species At Risk Act in Canada. These animals act as keystone or indicator species, having imperative relationships with their environment, and have the ability to represent and affect the vitality of their entire ecosystem. The current state of these struggling species is directly linked to climate change and human influences; they require deliberate actions from humanity to paint a different future for them.

Through a juxtaposition of nature and geometry, Bodewitz explores the delicate balance between organic and structural, species and ecosystems, and humans and environmental impact. Bodewitz is interested in the space amongst the tension of these intersections where harmony can be achieved.

Caitlin Bodewitz‘s creative pursuit is deeply rooted in her unique upbringing in a secluded mountain community in northern British Columbia where a respectful and passionate relationship with nature was fostered. Bodewitz went on to earn her BFA with Honours in Studio Concentration from the University of Calgary and now resides in Edmonton, Alberta. She has shown in several group exhibitions, the recipient of arts council grants, and her work is in permanent collections in the Glenbow Museum and Nickel Museum.

Opening Reception: Friday, February 23, 7-9 pm.
