Southeast Wind (2004)
EXHIBITION:An Online Exhibition
The southeast wind, which brings tempestuous weather to Haida Gwaii, is described in some stories as a supernatural sea creature that has the likeness of a killer whale. Davidson named the piece while it took shape in his studio: the bold black and red forms, unaccompanied by fine secondary lines, suggest the transformative force of this powerful being.
