“The Creator’s Sacrifice” is a cycle of 17 paintings that tell the Easter story as imagined by Ovide Bighetty, a self-taught Cree artist from northwestern Manitoba who paints in the Woodland Cree tradition. They are remarkable for their colour and vibrancy.
Take a look at this Kisemanito poster, and you’ll see what I mean.
All 17 paintings will be in Ottawa for a two week exhibit, March 23 – April 6th, at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church in Sandy Hill. For anyone interested in the intersection of spirituality and art, or aboriginal art and Christian spirituality, this show is not to be missed.
