Kusawake
Parting the Grass

S.Brooke Anderson visually documents the Japanese Immigration of the late 1800’ and early 1900’s to the Pacific Northwest through landscape and portraiture.  

Thematically arranged, her landscapes explore the lure of the vision of the western landscape, and what this vision represented to the Japanese Emigrants that drew them to North America. The landscape itself with its open skies and vastness unmistakably embodied the values associated with North America, fueling a desire to seek change and opportunity in a new land.

Her portraiture and figurative paintings of Japanese Emigrants, are inspired by historical passport photographs from both U.S. and British Columbia  archives, and from personal photographs belonging to descendants of Japanese Immigrants to Canada and the US. These paintings  explore the emotional journey through the faces of those who left Japan, going to the Pacific Northwest in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.  

Also explored in this collection is the changing face of the landscape upon arrival to the Pacific Northwest. The land as the Japanese immigrants encountered it is portrayed, inspired by historical quotations and/or photographs from the BC archives.
