Jewel Envy invited select past and present members of the studio to participate in the group show, “New Life”. New Life was to be interpreted in the context of our multicultural society. Did New Life conjure images of babies, flora and fauna, or was it the hope of better times associated with moving to Canada? Artists were asked if their chosen theme was affected by their current environment. Was their vision disparate from other parts of the world because of societal luxuries afforded to Canadians? Did the Canadian standard of living affect how they viewed the world? The work on display is each artists’ dissection and response to these questions.
