Christi Belcourt: Meeting the Artist -(Module 4-Post1)



In these two videos, Christi Belcourt explains her paintings, and the inspiration for them. It is evident that Christi‚Äôs work is driven by nature, and ecological issues regarding water, extinction of certain birds, and plants (along with their edibility and medicinal value). She refers to invaluable traditional knowledge. Christi explains how roots in one of her works represent connection to Mother Earth and her ancestors. My initial topic of inquiry is: ethnobotany through the Arts lens. Christi’s works are inspired by plants.
