Project Description

Bear Stepping Into Itself, by Cori Savard

“A bear will follow the same tracks laid down by the bears who went before them. They also stomp out trails of their own within their territory. As I carve out my own trail, I cross into the tracks laid down before me. The cream colour painted over the paper pays homage to early Haida printmaking, while the layout of the bear follows the form of classic bracelet designs. The red lines are a mixture of elements from painted woven basketry, and details observed in argillite carvings.” — Cori Savard

About the artist

Cori was born to the Yahgu’laanaas Raven clan on Haida Gwaii. Her family moved to the Gatineau/Ottawa region within a few years of her birth, but her connection to her Haida roots was maintained by weekly visits to the permanent collection of Haida works on display at the Canadian Museum of Civilizations in Gatineau, QC. Cori returned to Haida Gwaii in 2002, and quickly immersed herself in the art of her ancestors.
