The artistic practice of Mary Anne Barkhouse is deeply engaged with environmental and indigenous issues and incorporates in a central role a visual iconography of animals. Barkhouse situates her work between the two worlds of the human and the natural and employs the beaver, raven, wolf, and coyote as symbols of the ability to adapt, persist, regenerate, and repair throughout endless environmental incursions. Her skilled handling of traditional sculptural materials such as wood, bronze, porcelain, metal, and glass bring both a refined sensibility and serious tone to her often-playful installations. The works reflect on our skewed experience of nature as a resource for human needs rather than as an ecosystem with its own intrinsic value.

In Le rêve aux loups (The Dream of Wolves), Barkhouse invokes the animal inhabitants of the land and the flamboyant interiors of the Sun King, Louis XIV of France, in artworks that reveal the transitory nature of empire, and highlight both the triumphs and betrayal that delineate history north of the 49th parallel.

Le rêve aux loups originated at the Koffler Gallery, Toronto.
