Power of Nature
The bison series is one of Jennifer's most defining work.
The bison have had a difficult history in Canada. From the near extinction to the reintroduction of bison populations back into the wild around the world. Jennifer's studio is half an hour away from Elk Island National Park where there has been great conservation to protect and breed the last remaining wild herd of plains and wood buffalo in Canada. Her inspiration also comes from the bison sculptures recently discovered in France which remained in tact, carved from stone 14,000 years ago.
Jennifer's bison sculpture is a testament to how how like stone, the bison will remain as due to their strength and importance in the natural landscape . Protected by rock just like the caves in France but also emerging from the stone into this new world.
