Artist Statement : "Salmon were, and still are, a vitally important source of food to Natives of the Northwest Coast. Numerous legends have been told of the salmon and many artists find it a source of inspiration for paintings. In this design Joe has employed turquoise and silver to impart a sense of water. This print is an interesting blend of a traditional design set in a contemporary landscape." Statement provided by Vincent Rickard, Pacific Editions.
