SUNSET THROUGH THE BIRCH TREES
Linus Woods is a Dakota/Ojibway Indigenous artist from the Long Plain First Nation in Southern Manitoba where he was born June 3, 1967. While he has taken a few art and Native studies courses at Brandon University, and has studied with artists such as Jane Ash Poitras, he is largely self-taught. Linus sees his paintings as expressions and extensions of his spiritual journey. Working in acrylic, oil and collage on canvas, his art is subtle works featuring pastel pallets, geometric shapes and collaged imagery. Linus Woods is a winner of the Peace Hills Trust Company Art Competition and his work is in the Peace Hills Trust Collection and in a number of other collections including Winnipeg Children's Hospital, Long Plain First Nation, Curtis Joony Productions, Brandon University and Mae Moore.
