Artist Statement : Patrick Amos' print of a frog is an interesting artistic development. Depicted is a scene from nature in a partly realistic and partly stylistic manner. This is part of a recent transition in Northwest Coast Native graphics for some of the artists. From painted figures enclosed within a set space as on the side of a box, a housefront or a hat, to figures floating on rectangles of paper, we now see figures placed in realistic settings such as bullrushes and a lily pad.
