ARTIST’S STATEMENT This painting is a depiction of love corrupted by colonialism, corrupted by Catholicism. This painting is a cathARTic attempt to reflect the cultural reality of love corrupted in native communities by colonialism, Catholicism, because of Adam’s rib because of what Eve did because of the sexual satuRATION of Canadian society. This painting was executed in the hope that people can see this truth, and still be able to have a heART and love each other. .... In ancient times, the first man fell from the sky. When he landed in the Cowichan Valley, The Transformer and Daylight provided him with everything he needed to survive. In the bountiful Cowichan Valley, the first man had everything he needed to survive. He had land. He had food. He had shelter. But he was lonely. Out of his loneliness, he took a piece of wood and attempted to carve a companion, to create a wooden woman. Now I am a contemporary Coast Salish man attempting to find a carved companion a wooden woman to stick my wood in I just want to feel her up not feel for her having REZZidential relationships she stood me up she turned me down she called me up to call me down then we made up then we made out you sexual savage you promiscuous Pocahontas settling for sex in place of relationships when I come I attempt to come to terms with a past of perverted men molesting me of watching relatives rape relatives of brOTHERS and perverted priests in REZZidential schools molesting my grandparents molesting my parents molesting many generations when I come I attempt to come to terms with a past -- lessLIE
