Into the Light’ by Susan Point, O.C., DFA., RCA., D.Litt – First Nations Northwest Coast, Coast Salish Art presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts

Condition:          No condition noted.

Description by Artist:     ‘Into the Light’ – “Susan’s initial work as an artist grew hand-in-hand with her understanding of Salish art itself, which had been almost forgotten by the Salish people, and was unrecognized by the general public. Her original goal was to educate herself about Salish art and, in turn, to create artwork honoring the traditions of her ancestors.

Possibly the most rewarding aspects of her career have been the opportunity to meet elders, teachers and artists from other Salish communities and to see the current renaissance in Salish culture. The incredible amount of energy among the younger generation of artists is something that Susan sees every day – throughout Washington State and British Columbia, inspiring her daily as she works in her studio, side by side with her four children.

“Into the Light” is a celebration of the freedom that Susan finds within Salish art, the ability to play and experiment, to discover something new each day. In some way, everything is connected to everything else, and Susan strives to celebrate this connection within her artwork.”

Notes from DaVic Gallery:    One of the most abstract prints yet created by Susan Point and also very challenging to produce ensuring proper fit of colour layers during silkscreen printing process due to such large size of the paper.  The design in this print provides unique flexibility to frame and hang vertically or horizontally to best suit your decorating ideas.

The artist proof (AP) is often the first proof or set of proofs that the artist “pulls” to ensure that the image is printing to the desired effect. The Artist Proof holds a higher value than a regular edition piece due to its rarity as well as the possibility that they can contain the visual evidence of the artist’s progress. Artist Proofs are typically owned and kept by the artist so they are rarely released.

The blank sheet of letter-size (8.5” x 11”) paper covering part of the image in the last picture is for size reference.
