Interface: The Woven Artwork Of Jaad Kuujus
Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art, Vancouver, BC - To Jan 9, 2019
In the act of weaving, Kwakwaka’wakw and Haida artist Jaad Kuujus (Meghann O’Brien) says, “We weave backwards and forwards through time, creating space and the complex formlines and histories of our culture.” Raised in Alert Bay, she began weaving in the summer of 2007, while working on a commercial fi shing boat. She has since become an esteemed maker of intricate Naaxiin (Chilkat) textiles and tightly woven cedar bark baskets. Her art explores the conversation between the contemporary and the traditional.
