Mating Eagles – Remarque

Serigraph: Ink on Paper

22" X 28"

Artist/Curatorial Statement

Mating Eagles was my very first canvas painting. I later had serigraphs printed.

The design started out symmetrical with the first half done in traditional Salish design. Inside the body cavity is a human face that reflects our connection to and respect for nature and humans. When I drew the other side and flipped it around the eagles looked like they were going around in circles, twisting and turning in the sky as if mating. Inspired by the spindle whorl, I added a Salish weave blanket background.
