Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas
Madrona Gallery, Victoria, BC - Nov 5 - 18
This show features a selection of sculptures and mixed-media paintings by internationally renowned Haida artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas. Building on his acclaimed series Coppers from the Hood, Yahgulanaas brings together symbols of wealth and prestige across cultures. As the title of his series suggests, he marries the copper shields much valued by the Indigenous peoples of the North Pacific coast with the automobiles that signify socio-economic standing in North American settler culture.
