TVO Arts Video: Wisdom of the Universe | Christi Belcourt

Feb 15, 2024
From TVO Arts: “An enchanting thicket of greenery teeming joyously with life, Métis artist Christi Belcourt’s The Wisdom of the Universe has become something of a fan favourite at its home in the Art Gallery of Ontario. Rendered in Belcourt’s signature style, using hundreds of thousands of precise painted dots to simulate traditional Métis beadwork, The Wisdom of the Universe calls viewers attention to the tiniest details in order to understand the bigger picture.

In a distinctive style inspired by tradition, The Wisdom of the Universe reveals that the wonders of the natural world are worth fighting for.
