Indelible Ecological Imprint
This painting entitled "Indelible Ecological Imprint" shows an aerial view of how western agricultural practice has transformed natural environments to develop this part of our country. Most of the land in Western Canada was divided into a grid system of one square mile. These sections were distributed to new settlers for agricultural and other purposes. With this system, new boundaries and values replaced previous land stewardship.
A lot of these sections provide essential food to the population. Nature tries to balance the ecosystem by natural processes but we keep shifting the balance more quickly than natural processes. Modern agricultural practices have definitely impacted our use of the land. How can we improve our practices?
