Landscape as Muse

Season Two - Episode 15

Flying Creek Valley with Dennis J. Evans
Carved some 10,000 years ago by glacial runoff, the Qu'Appelle / Flying Creek Valley is a distinctive deep and narrow valley system unique in Canada's southern prairie. Inspired by ancient cultures, muti-disciplinary artist Dennis J. Evans has built an observatory here to study prairie light. Perched on the edge of the valley, this straw-bale structure provides a multitude of frames for the ever-changing landscape and a canvas for the dance of light and shadow. In this episode, Evans reveals his approach to art and life while his photographs capture the beauty of the place.
