Full Circle-Spawning Sockeye Salmon by Garnet Tobacco

“Full Circle—Spawning Sockeye Salmon,” by Garnet Tobacco, Cree Nation. Garnet Tobacco was born in northern Manitoba into the same tradition as Norval Morrisseau and Isaac Bignell, with whom Garnet Tobacco worked closely, adopting Bignell’s use of sponges instead of brushes to achieve his trademark ethereal softness and flow. This sockeye salmon is in the last phase of its life cycle, having returned to spawn in its native freshwater stream. Acrylic on stretched canvas, 16 x 20 inches. Value $425
