  • Sgaana Saahlaan Sdings [Framed]

    Cori Savard

    CA$950.00

    Serigraph, Edition 27 of 125

    2022

    Framed

    “Sgaana Saahlaan Sdings means Two Finned Killerwhale. The imagery in this print focuses on the two dorsal fins. Attached to the body of the whale, they have no control over their direction or destination. The thin lines around the design represent the spray and the water that rolls off the body of the whale as it emerges from the depths to take a breath. With this new energy, it continues its journey, facing an ever-changing ocean landscape.

    The first dorsal fin represents the discomfort and apprehension that comes with the unexpected changes in our lives. It braces itself for the next wave, the next plunge, engaging in a losing battle against the momentum of the whale. The thin lines between the dorsal fins form teeth, creating a mouth that represents a shared experience and a shift in our mindset. The second dorsal fin represents acceptance, resilience, and the positive energy that follows our ability to adapt. Once we recognize our apprehension, we are free to challenge it. To seek the positive within the negative and move forward with renewed energy.” – Cori Savard, 2022

  • Fisherman’s Delight [Framed]

    Robert Davidson RCA

    CA$2,300.00

    Serigraph, Edition 7 of 81

    Framed

    “I went fishing with Reg and his friend Tom Wylie last summer. I was really taken because they were charged with excitement. They kept handing me a rod but I was just happy to watch because they were really interesting… When we went to the river to fish we were excited to know that we had replenished the food supply. Reg has constantly replenished the halibut and salmon supply for freezers in the village because he feels the need and so few people own boats.

    The focus point in this piece of art is a Spring Salmon depicted with the face of Humanity. Traditionally, the native societies were established around fishing, hunting, and gathering. The most valuable resource was salmon. For thousands of years, salmon was the primary food source for the people on the Canadian Northwest Coast. As a result of overfishing came a time of scarcity. Salmon perished and humanity depended heavily on its return. Salmon is a powerful symbol of regeneration, prosperity, and renewal for the Haida people.
    ⠀⁠ ⁠⁠⁠ ⁠
    ⁠In the bottom right corner of this painting, Kuugan Jaad (also known as Mouse Woman) comes into sight. She is a character in many Haida legends. Mouse Woman is a supernatural being. She is the mother of Raven according to the mythology. She often appears in stories as a helper or advisor to those who are on a journey or to those who have crossed (or are about to cross) to another dimension (Spirit World or the unknown). She is highly respected as she offers great wisdom to restore order and balance. According to mythology, Mouse Woman can change shapes. She can be a big eyed mouse and change into a tiny human grandmother. However, in art, her appearance is mostly abstract.⁠
    ⠀⁠ ⁠⁠⁠ ⁠
    When I’m creating a design, sometimes subconsciously Kuugan Jaad just appears in the art piece. Her form arises automatically during the creative process. It is striking because she is known to lend a helping hand to story characters in our legends.“ ~ Robert Davidson

  • Sk’ug sdang (Two Dog Salmon) [Framed]

    Robert Davidson RCA

    CA$1,860.00

    Serigraph, Edition 26 of 97

    2021

    Framed

    [This serigraph] is about the hope that we can change direction from global annihilation to a more balanced way of life. These two-dog salmon symbolize the last stage of their life as they swim upstream to lay their eggs ensuring another generation of dog salmon to be born. It has become more and more present-day civilization’s responsibility to ensure they will return again and again for future generations.” – Robert Davidson, 2021

  • Tide Walker [Framed]

    Ben Davidson

    Price upon request

    Serigraph, Edition 46 of 77

    2017

    Framed

    Ben Davidson’s Tide Walker is a remarkably expressive serigraph by one of the Northwest Coast’s foremost artists. The blend of traditional and contemporary formlines, as well as the use of rich and saturated colour, joins to create an aesthetic that is distinctly a Ben Davidson work.

    Below are the artist’s own words regarding this piece:

    “Tide Walker exists in the space between the land and the ocean. From afar, he appears as a dorsal fin, so we imagine his body beneath the waves. We are so desperate to be the first to see the killer whale that we allow our minds to complete his story before we have time to determine the truth. We are so swiftly lured into believing the surface story that we rarely take time to consider what lies beneath.” (Davidson, 2017).

    Ben Davidson is an internationally-renowned contemporary First Nations artist. He is the son of Robert Davidson, also of international fame. Ben stays true to his Haida ancestry, while always pushing the boundaries of traditional artwork.
