This is my utensil art work. It is a landscape I call 'fox in the forest'.
Create a picture out of the utensils in your kitchen. That picture could be a landscape, an animal, a person, a photo, a copy of a famous painting like the Mona Lisa, etc. Be creative, be inspired.
What you need:
For this project you will need all sorts of whatever you can find.
You will also need a flat surface to spread your utensils out on.
I had to clean my surface first.
Ask your parent or guardian for permission before you clear the table and dig through the kitchen. Ask a parent or guardian or older brother, sister, cousin, auntie or uncle, … if you need help to find things.
How to: Use your creative mind ... your imagination.
Artists Bob and Roberta Smith suggested making a tree out of kitchen utensils like spoons, forks, knives, cookie cutters, can openers, serving spoons, whisks, rolling pins, graters, etc. Bob and Roberta want to honour the life force of trees in this utensil artwork.
"We are, therefore I am."
Indigenous understanding is that we come into being through our community, through our relationships. We survive through our relations.
As we wait out the coronavirus pandemic as safe as we can be, we are reminded that we are part of a community. Our actions can keep others safe and help others to be and stay healthy.
Elder Bill Jones of the Pacheedaht Nation in Port Renfrew reminds us that "... our land, ocean and sky and rivers are ... part of the All. And this All is all we are."
