Ɂuuyatuk qumaahiišił: RESPECT EVERYTHING
Coastal Peoples Fine Arts Gallery, Vancouver, BC - May 23 – Jul 23
This solo show by Nuu-chah-nulth artist Moy Sutherland is shaped by his respect for the interconnectedness of all things – natural and supernatural, earthly and celestial. His art cherishes the cultural teachings of his forebears and the knowledge and insights of the master carvers with whom he apprenticed, including Art Thompson and Carey Newman. Sutherland works across many media and scales, from totem poles to gold jewelry, and is especially admired for his cedar carvings inlaid with abalone and operculum.
