Description

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

Condition:          1 inch minor scuff beneath edition number.

Description by Artist:

“Weep for me not my heart gone one

who flew from me as an eagle to the moon

can you come to love me, if only for one day

hold me to your bosom, close, so I

might feel your heart

beating love, wisdom and light upon my

tiny bod

will you mother come to me,

and take my baby pain away

fill me with what was stolen from me, time and time again

see that moon, just over there, rising from the sea,

meet me there my mother dear, embrace me ’til

I’m free, from all the shadows dancing’round, flailing,

brawling with deathly sound,

so come my mother, please, for just a while.

yes,

over there, you see that moon rising from

the sea,

meet me there my mother, please,

embrace me towards eternity.”

— Francis Dick

Notes from DaVic Gallery:   This limited edition silkscreen print titled “Child to Mother” by Francis Dick was published in October, 1997.  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:  85 signed and numbered copies, 8 artist’s proofs, 8 Remarque’s and 1 printer’s proof.  All other trial copies have been destroyed and the printing stencils obliterated.
