Settlement (2012 | Rodman Hall Art Centre, St. Catherines, Ontario)
From Brock University:
Settlement incorporates two life-size bronze sculptures of a coyote and a badger in an artist’s garden built in the shape of a frontier house (16×20 feet).
Reid said the two animals allude to the co-operative nature of the allies involved in the 1812 conflict. “In the wild, coyotes and badgers work together and both benefit from a partnership while they hunt,” he explained. “The animal partnership is an analogy for the allied co-operation between the settling people during the War of 1812.”
