This is a new framed copy of Northwest Coast artist Susan Point's "Beyond the Edge" limited edition serigraph. The shape represents a spindle whorl for weaving - the main art form of the Coast Salish - which is filled with a panoply of Northwest Coast Native animals crest figures. Salmon, whales, owls, ravens, sparrows, frogs, and thunderbirds all fill this space in a colourful tapestry of West Coast symbolism. With dominant tones of green, brown, and blue, the palette is primarily earthy. This particular print is framed: it measures 35" x 35" unframed.Susan writes the following about this print. Beyond the edge of the earths rocky crust, there is a thin blue line separating life on earth from the infinite blackness of space. This is our atmosphere just a few kilometres of water vapour and other gaseous molecules. Within the zone of our thin biosphere, life thrives and evolves. We humans are part of a web of interconnections closely linked to one another. All of our behaviours, whether biological, cultural or economic in nature, are activities within a larger ecosystem; we humans are not independent. Every aspect, particularly living beings on Earth are being impacted by our actions we each hold the world in our hands. Susan Point, although primarily self-taught, has received training in wood carving from master carver, John Livingston.
