Emily Carr is a Canadian artist from British Columbia. Some of her paintings display totem poles native to her homeland, and I like those, but this painting swept me up in its wind of light. Everything is so strong: the light, the wind, the trees, the ground. This is about a country that stands firm and a light so tenacious it rides on the wind. I’m trying to imagine how a person would look in the picture, but it’s not meant for small things.
