Jerry Evans

“I feel compelled not only to celebrate but to dissect and explore my native heritage, how it relates to the European culture and how the two cultures, of which I am a part, interact and affect each other.” So states Jerry Evans, a Mi’kmaq artist based in St. John’s, Newfoundland. His visual art is represented in collections across Canada and the world, and his film credits include the short Vistas: Red Ochre, a reflection on his own past fashioned from archival photography and film.
