Up the Gatineau!

Volume 50, 2024

Fromt cover: Tenàgàdino by Claude Latour.
This is a mixed media work abstracted from an India ink drawing from the artist’s “My Yellow House” series project. In the artist’s words:
My grandfather Lloyd Budge worked for CIP as a shantyman along the local rivers for over 30 years, having started at 8 years of age. This work reminds me of the wilds of the river before the Baskatong, Mercier, Paugan, Chelsea and Rapides-Farmer dams were built, forever altering the balance of the original ecosystem within the Algonquin Anishinabe territory.
In the forefront is an eagle feather, on the rock in the centre an eagle, to the left on the cliff an old spirit watching over the classic landscape of the raging river, ancient rocks, logs and trees before the flooding, surrounded by ancient hills older than the Himalayas.
