Salish Loom

by


SOLD

“As a representative of the host nation of Musqueam, I am pleased to be invited to share in this landmark exhibition. In April 0f 2003 I visited Aotearoa and met with a number of artists in the show. I was also aware of the invitation to make a piece for the show based on my Maori experience and I returned with great energy and many ideas.”

Susan Point’s Salish Loom is inspired by her people’s traditions and artistic legacy. While she is perhaps one of the first in her family in generations not to be a weaver, Susan sees many of the decorated implements and utilitarian items of her ancestors with an appreciation of their sculptural qualities, rather than just the functional purpose.

This mixed medium Salish Loom further demonstrates her love for form as well as function.

Coast Salish (Musqueam)

(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.
