Artist Statement : "It's a stage in my development as an artist and a human being that warrants this print. I have gone through a remarkable evolution over the last 30 years as an artist. I was a copyist, a follower, a student, and an apprentice but now I believe I have come full circle with myself. I can now say I do have a style all my own for my people. The New moon suggests that there is a new time developing and I am looking at it straight on with the incredible help of my wolf companion. The wolf companion represents for me the whole of the Nuu-chah-nulth people. What I leave as an artist will be ours, as well as all our children. Wolves and moons have been very significant in my development as a artist as will continue to accompany me through my evolution in the arts." - Art Thompson
