Details

"Some of my work, when simply depicting nature and animals, is a visual tribute to the greatness of nature and animals. This painting is a tribute to salmon. On a formal level, the middle of the design--the eccentric circle and the negative ovals above and below the trigons, have a minor northern Northwest Coast influence; yet they are rendered in a style which is distinctly Coast Salish. Concentric circles are design elements of Coast Salish art, but in the case of this design, they are eccentric circles. Concentric ovals are a design element of Coast Salish art, but in the case of this design, they are simply negative ovals flanking a negative trigon. How many influences a contemporary Coast Salish artist can accept from Haida art without succumbing to a Haida-centric perspective is a matter of cultural conFUSION." -lessLIE
