Description

Ascending’ by Francis Dick – First Nations Northwest Coast Kwakwaka’wakw Art presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.

Condition: No condition to be noted.

Description by Artist:Ascending is dedicated to my late cousin Anthany Dawson. One of his last pieces that he carved was a Raven headdress. It is one of the most beautiful three dimensional pieces I’ve ever seen. This painting (on which this serigraph is based) is of a Raven which is ascending to the heavens.

‘For you, Anthany, let your spirit soar forever and always.'”

-Francis Dick

Notes from DaVic Gallery: This limited edition silkscreen print titled “Ascending” by Francis Dick was published in October, 2005. It was hand produced by the screenprinting process. It is the only limited edition printing of this design. The artist was involved in the printmaking, checking the stencils and signing each copy in the edition: 80 signed and numbered copies, 8 artist’s proofs, 1 printer’s proof. All other trial copies have been destroyed and the printing stencils obliterated.
