"Early Morning Fog"
Judith Martin, "Early Morning Fog," Pastel on Paper, 22” x 30”.
The Coyotes Artist Collective is a loosely knit group of 11 landscape artists and writers from different provinces and territories in Western Canada. Like solitary coyotes, the artists in the Collective tend to run alone, but they cross each other’s paths from time to time.
What unites the group is the desire to represent their specific landscape interests as emotional experiences. These artists connect the viewer with Northern Canada through their diverse points of view and expressive art mediums.The artists in the Collective were selected to produce work on the theme of Facing North, a theme which could mean many things: a point on a compass, an attitude, a spiritual yearning, a place on a map or an idea in the imagination of the artist. Some of these works are realistic interpretations of the subject, and others are ‘conceptual constructions’ about what the idea of North means to them.
