Wally Dion: Current

Mixed Media,Textiles

Mixing the contemporary with the traditional, Wally Dion uses materials such as circuit boards and auto paint to create his own renditions of Indigenous quilt patterns. Dionís quilt assemblages are an extension of his portraiture of First Nations workers, and serve as a way to represent those who work in fields such as childcare, education, software and information management, and communications. Dion draws inspiration from artists such as Indigenous Canadian painter Bob Boyer, and quilting bees during which First Nations women historically gathered to make quilts for burials, dances, and other ceremonies. This exhibition features three of Dionís quilts.
