$3000.00 CAD

Quinn Hopkins' artwork, Bear Market, poignantly reflects the complex relationship between humans and nature, focusing on the consequences of environmental impact on wildlife. Drawing inspiration from the Woodland School of Art, Hopkins depicts black bears in a polluted landscape, employing spirit lines to emphasize their spiritual connection to the earth. The piece juxtaposes the bears' intrinsic connection to nature with the ecological degradation brought on by human activity, sparking thought and evoking memories of personal encounters with wildlife. Engaging with the discourse of environmental justice and environmental racism, Hopkins' work highlights the far-reaching implications of capitalist and colonial strategies on marginalized communities and ecosystems. Through Bear Market, Quinn Hopkins seeks to inspire viewers to consider their environmental footprint and the importance of preserving our natural world.
