Description

An enlightening look at the influence of European expressionism on the work of modernist artists of the Canadian West. Evocative of the postwar social climate, the perspective these artists offer can be unsettling, uncanny and disturbing. Viewed together, their work brings a perspective to the province and its people that belies the myth of Alberta as a land of beauty and prosperity.
