Within the Circle
‘Within the Circle’ 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: Every day is a new day, and I am still learning. The Circle Within is part of a triptych which began with two silkscreens that I produced in 2007 — Within the Circle and Broken Circle — both of which are in the VAG exhibition.
I started using this grid system in 1990, designing then carving the original patterns from yellow cedar, then fabricating multiple grids to create a never-ending overall repeat wall mural for architectural projects. Unlike many of my more complex grid works, in which two or more grid patterns were carved to create an overall wall mural, in The Circle Within I carved just one grid in yellow cedar, fabricated a rubber mould, then cast eight grids in polymer. I then inserted the carved and painted original yellow cedar pattern into the very centre of the piece. – Susan Point
