Throughout the works in Picks From the Rabbit Hole there is an underlying commentary on endangered environments. One recalls the landscapes made famous by Canada's revered Group of Seven and their portrayal of the wild new world as bold and monolithic. Similarly striking images appear in Lobchuk's work but the cultural relationship to the environment has vastly changed since the last century. The paintings are memorials to icons of a country - its trees and lakes, agriculture and industry - that are constantly threatened. Nature is no longer a force to be endured but one that requires protecting.
