Landscape as Muse

This exclusively Canadian series captured by 291 Film Company documents Canadian environmental artists engaged in the philosophy, process and use of materials in their art.
The selected sites are always captivating and filmed well, some artists/locations are better than others...I guess you could say I was partial to Clayoquot Sound with Fae Logie and Haida Gwaii with Shirley Wiebe. Nice one Knowledge Network.
