The original painting to this edition is featured in "Robert Davidson: The Abstract Edge".
The Southeast Wind, which brings tempestuous weather to Haida Gwaii, is described in some stories as a supernatural sea creature that has the likeness of a Killer Whale. Davidson named the painting while it took shape in his studio: the bold black and red forms, unaccompanied by fine secondary lines, suggest the transformative force of this powerful being. A stylistic departure, the work nevertheless reveals echoes of the U and tri-neg ideas explored in earlier painterly studies.
