Nuu-chah-nulth (Tsheshaht) Nation
Gordon Dick is Nuu Chah Nulth artist from the Tsheshaht First Nation on the West coast of Vancouver Island, where he grew up and still resides. At an early age his grandparents, Alan and Agnes Dick taught him the traditional teachings, stories and values of his heritage. It is from these family teachings that Gordon’s artistic vision has blossomed.
At the young and tender age of 15 years old Gordon began to develop and master his artistic skills. He has worked in various mediums including painting, drawing, ceramics and wood carving. Jewellery carving has become his particular passion and currently he creates beautiful works in gold, silver and traditional copper, often combining a variety of metals and/or precious stones within a piece. His original designs combine contemporary and traditional modes however, his attention to detail and sculpting provides additional dimension to each work.
Gordon Dick is a unique artist who creates wearable artworks of distinct styles which still retain the Northwest Coast traditional conceptions. His work may be found in both local and international collections. Gordon Dick continues to expand his artistic skills and visions into new mediums while preserving his culture for future generations.
