‘Water Ways‘ by First Nations Dene artist John Rombough – Original Dene Art style painting presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts
Condition: No condition to report.
Description by Artist: ‘Water Ways‘ – The bear and raven watch over the waterfall. They both love the sound of the water as it makes its way over to the land. The Lady in the falls protects all the fresh water that feeds all the animals and birds across the Dene Land.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: This is a new playful, colourful, and very active style that John has been practicing using from 22 to 23 different colours and shades in this painting. One is drawn into this world of detail and movement of this fascinating painting. He was thinking of no longer using this style as it actually takes him at least 1.5 times more time and effort than his well-known style.
John’s background and community is Chipewyan Dene.
