Broken Circle (2007)


  • Medium: serigraph
  • Size: 24.5 × 18 inches
  • Edition: 52
  • Reference Code: SP2007-07


With its fishing net bulging under the weight of a large catch of fish, Broken Circle is a piece that talks about the dangers facing fish species around the world, and in particular on the West Coast of North America where the Musqueam people, and Susan’s own sons, fish. Factors such as global warming, and over-fishing, among others, have brought the number of salmon returning each year to spawn to an all time low. Throughout the cycle of the salmon, from their spawning ground where many water levels are low and temperatures are too warm for the small fry, through the rivers and the ocean where they face other perils for the rest of their lives, there are a host of conditions working against these majestic fish.

The fine details of Broken Circle compel the viewer to draw closer, and take a careful look at what is happening in the image. Susan’s hope is that it will also inspire people to look closer in order to understand the subtleties and multitude of factors involved in the issue of dwindling fish stocks. By looking closer and seeking to understand the problem, perhaps we can all take small, positive steps to take better care of the earth and its creatures.

(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.
