...The First Nations-themed works commanded attention with three large red and white circular compositions that read like digital colour-field mandalas or abstract targets. These digital prints, Meditation on Red (2013) by Anishinaabe artist Nadia Myre, give a close-up view of beadwork in Canadian flag colours, conflating issues of nationalism, Aboriginal heritage, and aesthetic modernism so subtly that it’s easy to initially miss their nuanced worth.
