Robert Davidson (Haida)

Acrylic on Canvas

60" H30" W

This painting by Haida artist Robert Davidson was the original to a popular edition of prints and was a part his solo show at the Seattle Art Museum. It was published in their catalogue, Abstract Impulse as well. The painting is inspired by Davidson's positive vision of finding the uplifting element even in the hardest of times. While the news can be full of dark and foreboding events it is imperative for us to maintain balance in our lives by focusing on the light. Robert has used a delicate balance of dark and light colours, shapes that can seem both strong and gentile to create the situation where one can find light in darkness.
