A word from the artist

Creating a collection of graphic and visceral images around the theme of dialogue came naturally to me. Art and theatre are universal human languages that bring people together. Dialogue is a human dance of languages, a myriad of ways to interpret each movement and a practice woven into our ancestral DNA. In these artworks, I wanted there to be a thread linking all the stories to reflect the fluidity of language. These stories are bold, their messages are moving, and they'll be talked about for years to come. I wanted the artworks I created to be as timeless as their subjects. Dialogue is not just a conversation, it's a reciprocal act of giving and receiving.

Jazz Aline is an artist from Treaty 1, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Navigating artistic mediums like a river system she recreates her dreams, experiences, stories, and views as they ought to be: deep like wild grass roots, and big like prairie skies.

She records her surroundings like a historian, remembering and reimagining the faces of our landscapes for present, past, and future revision. A gift of remembering through artistic language and renditions of her folklore for the 21st century.
