Abstract (English)

"Seeking knowledge about plants and ecological systems, Toogood’s work aspires to renew the relationship that humans have with their natural environment and investigates the meaning of representing the natural world. Developing out of a previous body of work depicting the effects of human intervention on the lives of animals, this new series focuses on the spaces inhabited or formerly inhabited by animals. Far Off Kin—implying a separation in time, a distance from an ancient connection to that which is familiar, and an observation on how the inhabitants have affected the navigational course of the earth—presents a viewpoint of the Canadian landscape at a time of redefinition and massive environmental change." -- Publisher's website
