Title: "Experience Canada: Canadian Experience" (no longer on site)

Artist: Dyan Marie   Exhibition year: 2009

Dyan Marie's work Experience Canada: Canadian Experience explores the idea of immigration fostered by the allure of the imagined Canadian landscape. Silhouettes of inner city shop owners, posed in front of their storefronts, are in-filled with forest and lake landscapes. These city/forest/forest/city image exchanges are installed as billboards in the pastoral and forest settings of The Tree Museum and as hanging street light banners along Bloor Street near Lansdowne Ave. in Toronto.

Dyan Marie has been an exhibiting visual artist since the 1980s and is represented in Toronto by Wynick/Tuck Gallery. Recent art projects and initiatives explore ideas and reflections on urban issues and contemporary cultural experience.
