"I Have to Shout..."

Watercolor on paper  |  55 x 22 inches  |  2017

Using watercolor and synthetic pigments, an invented language of characters translates an excerpt by a young Innu poet, Natasha Kanapé Fontaine, which reads: "I have to shout / so you can soar among the highest swallows / my love is an avalanche."
