Artist/Curatorial Statement

Feast is a Thunderbird design with the black background representing an Orca Whale and the red splatter representing blood as the Thunderbird feasts on the Orca Whale. There is a story of an Orca Whale getting caught in the bay where the Cowichan river meets the ocean and the Orca Whale is eating all the salmon before the salmon can swim upstream and in turn the villages are starving so the people call upon the Thunderbird to come and take the Orca Whale away as the Thunderbird preys upon the Orca Whale.
