CONVERSATION - Christi Belcourt
Canadian artist Christi Belcourt created this dotted floral pattern painting on a black background symbolizing nineteenth-century Métis beadwork. From her Lessons from the Earth exhibition (2003) the central flower symbolizes her mentor, a woman who was a great connector.
As a fan of anything floral and decorative, this intricate piece is right down my alley: color, pattern, folk art-oriented and whimsy.
The Conversation, 2003 Acrylic on Canvas 52" x 52"
