Terre D’Accueil

Commissioned by MU, 2015

Located at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance housing project (at the intersection of Ontario E. and St. Dominique), the mural is the third in the series representing the four elements. The view and inspiration of Earth was taken from Mont Royal. With the tree in the center of the composition, the viewer is presented with two vignettes on either side of the tree; the city and nature. The heart on the crumpled piece of paper relates to our use of earth as a material, but also the symbol of love and that earth is our heart. The mural was created to relate to its surrounding, with the foreground tree having a placement in the overall composition. This mural was created while in creative residency at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance.
