Montina Hussey


When Montina gave birth to her son she wanted to put aside a more troubling subject and rectify joy again. So in 2019, she began to paint vibrant impressionistic landscapes.  This series stems from childhood memory and ancestral. Some scenes are nostalgic imagery stained in her mind and brought to life with vibrant and irrational colours. Other paintings revive archives of her grandparents during the 1920s, a time where they faced the aftermath of their own worldwide pandemic. Painting nature also brings Montina closer to her Ojibwa ancestry. She believes these landscapes and the process of creating them have been a way to cope with the world's current conditions, and her own mental health.
