Depicting the Circle Hunt

Artist Carrie Walker is inspired by historical "circle hunts" -- in which hunters would form a circle around a large portion of land and slowly close in, killing every animal they came across.

Carrie found rich imagery in descriptions of these events, and had a desire to depict the now-forgotten animals. In "Depicting the Circle Hunt" from PKN Richmond, BC Vol. 3, we see how she embarked on a road trip to recreate scenes which she skillfully translated onto paper.
