This painting recently hung in the Emily Carr House in Victoria, as part of the James Bay Art Walk.
One of my first west coast rainforest encounters was on a kayak trip in the Broughton Archipelago, shortly after having moved across Canada to Vancouver Island. The green mystery, density, and abundance that surrounded me were so evocative of an Emily Carr painting that I was convinced that I had stepped “into” one of her canvases rather than into the rainforest itself.
