The Tradition of the Land

Among artists in the Yukon there’s a running debate about the possible excessiveness of “moose and mountain” art, but the fact is that many Yukoners have a passion for “the bush”. They take pride in surviving year after year of extreme climate and traversing the vast distances between the small communities that dot the territory. Immersed in this place, these three artists continue in the larger Canadian art tradition of representing the landscape: literal and spiritual (Christl), metaphorical (Moore), and assembled (Majiski).
