X-Ray Vision: Printmaking
Nonetheless, there are common currents among the so-called Woodlands School style. It is marked by references to early Anishainaabeg religious traditions and history. Young artists were interested in expressing their native heritage, as seen in the key visual elements of the style. One element of the style is the use of x-ray views that show the insides of animals, representing their spiritual lives. Other elements include divided circles, representing dualities such as night and day, good and evil and wavy lines indicating movement. Flowing lines between two beings suggest interdependence.
