Meg Harder, Origin of the Universe, 2017, giclée print on archival card stock, 12" by 14.5," unframed. Meg Harder was born and works in Ontario, Canada. Her recent work draws on the Mennonite tradition of fraktur art, a highly imaginative and densely detailed illuminated folk art, historically practiced in Ontario. This work carries forward the aesthetic sensibilities of fraktur while expanding its visual vocabulary and narrative potential, disrupting tired normative narratives with embodied knowledge and regional texture. Filled with symbolic, dream-world, and mythological elements, the final images resist an ultimate interpretation and create space for reimagining historical and future realities.
