Spiritual wildlife art

Contemporary Native artist, IceBear's Manitouwabi exhibition on until June 1 at the Gallery at the MAC.

Manitouwabi, and exhibition by contemporary Native artist, IceBear, is on display at the Gallery at the MAC until June 1.

Works by contemporary native and wildlife artist IceBear are on display for the Manitouwabi exhibition at the Gallery at the MAC until June 1.

Manitouwabi translates to “Spirit” in the language of the artist’s people. The exhibition focuses largely on matters of the spirit in all its forms. IceBear’s paintings and sculptures explore the relationship of humans to their world, and their spiritual connection to it.

The collection includes acrylic and giclees with hand-painted details, on canvas in both the upper and lower lobbies.

The exhibition features Return to Eden, a piece that was created specifically for the Florence Biennale in Italy, where he exhibited in 2009.

A member of the Chippewas of Nawash Band of Ontario, which forms part of the Ojibway Nation, IceBear moved to Vancouver Island more than 15 years ago and now has a studio in the Cowichan Valley.

IceBear is well known for the three murals in Sindey, where he used to have his studio. He also created the Four Winds statue situated at Mermaid Wharf in Victoria’s Inner Harbour.
