About The Artwork

Early drawing, to the Painting “HAIDA” is a creation of a specific image or series of images, forming the whole or part of a composition which I intend to complete by adding pigment color (paints, colored inks, etc). For 400 years Indigenous people welcomed successive waves of settlers to the upper half of North America. These newcomers would not have survived in our adverse climate and rugged habitat without Indigenous hospitality and expertise. The Indigenous concept of inclusion leaves room for multiple identities and loyalties. It sees no contradiction between diversity and fairness. It imagines belonging as an inclusive circle that continuously expands regardless of where you have come from and adapts to changing circumstances. It seeks a balance between place, group, and individual. In July 2012, entrepreneur Russ George dispersed 100 short tons (91 t) of iron sulphate dust into the Pacific Ocean several hundred miles west of the islands of Haida Gwaii. The Old Massett Village Council was persuaded to finance this geoengineering experiment as a “salmon enhancement project” with $1 million in village funds. The fish presents a First Nation Canadian with plastic around his belly. This denotes a completed stand-alone autonomous work.
