Maureen Enns (from video clip)
This 5 minute video of Maureen Enns was recorded from her recent interview on Alberta Prime Time prior to her summer exhibition at The Edge Gallery in Calgary. She spoke of her experiences with camels in Australia, elephants in Africa, bears in Eastern Europe and North America and how she came to admire the feral horses and wolves in the Eastern Slopes of the Rockies and their common threats for survival.
“It has taken me 10 years to create this body of work. Since the publication of my book, Wild Horses, Wild Wolves in 2013, I have continued to document the re-wilding of the equine species in the Ghost Forest of Alberta. My drawings boldly reflect the wild and the free in the horses and their incredible pride reminiscent of images of First Nations peoples at the beginning of the 20th century. My paintings have a utopian quality, reflecting upon a positive future for the Ghost wild horses and their wolves.”
