Here we have two more views of Tepkik, which I left off yesterday. The sculpture suits the interior of the Gallery's glass tower quite well.
My purpose for the visit was to see the permanent galleries again. The Gallery hosts Canadian and world art on two levels, in a chronological order, generally speaking. Going through the doors gives us a view of First Nations sculptures and works. In 2017 the Canadian galleries were reorganized, blending together works by First Nations artists with the European influenced art of white artists. It works remarkably well, and a number of artifacts are the first thing that crosses our eyes.
This contemporary work hangs nearby, the work of a Coast Salish artist called lessLIE. It has the evocative title wHOLE w(((h)))orl(((d))). The accompanying panel explains its influences in the words of the artist.
