Leah Fontaine

Leah Fontaine has worked in the performing and visual arts communities of Winnipeg for several years. A First Nations artist, much of Fontaine's art is connected to her Dakotah/Anishinaabe heritage. While indigenous symmetry, iconography and worldview feed her intuitive perceptions, she seeks out her spiritual ethos visually through the use of digital technology. Show + Tell includes two works from her Elements series that combine digital imaging processes and collage to reference the Medicine Wheel and symbolically interpret Fontaine's environment as a place filled with memory, imagination and dreams.
