Janice Wright Cheney examines the historical and cultural ideas that shape western understandings of the natural world. Using variety of techniques and materials, her works may be embroidered, knit, hand-dyed, felted, or sewn from recycled materials.

The results range from museum boxes with pinned insect specimens to an installation of bears made from red roses. Her latest installation “Widow (Walking)” is a bear standing in mid-stride on three legs with the fourth raised off the ground. It is now on display on the the fifth-floor reception area of the new Telus Garden building in downtown Vancouver.
