Country Queers

Sam Loewen

Screen print on over-dyed cotton handkerchief
22 x 22 in. / 56 x 56 cm
Modified edition of 10, available in two colour options

"Growing up as a queer kid in the rural community of Lethbridge, Alberta, I often read loose copies of The Old Farmer's Almanac laying around my grandparent's home. This popular periodical intermingled gardening advice, astronomy, natural phenomena, and weather predictions with illustrated folklore. As a kid flipping through these pages, I felt the botanical drawings, horoscopes, and illustrations offered me alternative narratives and knowledge, that subverted the conservative religious culture I was immersed in, and connected me to the surrounding plains landscape and farmland in alternative ways.

"In Country Queers, 2019 the screen-printed drawings, motifs, and portraits reference imagery and narratives from The Old Farmer’s Almanac, symbols from tarot divination practices, cameos from popular cinema, and site-specific flora and fauna from Southern Alberta, and the Hanky Code."
