A bead artist, painter and jeweler, Catherine Blackburn’s art practice is informed by her Dene and European ancestry. The Leask, Saskatchewan-based artist considers Canada's colonial past through an exploration of her own personal relationships and life experiences. The pieces in Tell Me the Truth use media, materials and artistic processes including beadwork and quilling, photography, sculpture, and painting, to connect subjects both personal and political: the history of the fur trade in Canada, familial relationships, Catholicism, the Dene language, loss, and the body.
