The Circle Within

by


SOLD

Consisting of nine panels, The Circle Within is a dramatic piece that features an original carved yellow cedar panel in the center surrounded by eight identical pieces cast in polymer. While all of the panels contain the same images of two sets of four salmon swimming in a circle, the center panel was re-carved after it was returned from the casting so that no other panels can be cast from it. The center now features a raindrop rippling out from the very middle, whereas the polymer panels show four salmon egg domes locked tightly together.

For Susan, this is a piece that reflects her grave concern for the salmon and their dwindling numbers. She is worried that her grandchildren may be the last generation to see the salmon return each year. Not only are the salmon a vital element in the region’s ecosystem, but they play a irreplaceable role in the cultural survival of local First Nations people. Without the salmon there would be no legends or traditions, no gathering after fishing, no feasting or sharing stories. Our generation is the last chance these magnificent creatures have.

(1952- )

Susan began making limited edition prints on her kitchen table in 1981 while working as a legal secretary. She received several early commissions, which established her reputation for innovative proposals and for completing projects on time, on budget and at the highest level. She took courses in silver, casting and carving, all of which led to monumental sculptures in mixed media, and she was the first Northwest Coast artist to work in glass. She continues to release a number of print editions each year, but her focus has been on commissioned sculpture.
