Charlene Vickers – Earthly Delights

Charlene Vickers was thinking about Hieronymus Bosch when she wondered what an Anishnaabe Garden of Earthly Delights would look like. The video below shows how her thoughts played out. It’s an unusually informative and compelling inside glimpse at how a multi-disciplinary artist approaches work.

Charlene Vickers, an Anishinaabe artist based in Vancouver, works in painting, drawing, sculpture, assemblage, and performance. In her paintings, “Vickers infuses layers of vivid gestures and forms to illuminate life underneath shadows and textures, imagining emergent landscapes and birthing creatures amid mythic transformation,” the Macaulay gallery says.
