| MARK GEORGE, 1995
graphite on paper 23”x32”
Mark George, nephew of Paul George, great nephew of Chief Dan George, is a Coast Salish Indian of the Burrard Nation, North Vancouver.
I sense Mark’s spirit longs for the old days of his ancestors;
his heart for earlier times. A skilled carver in his own right, Mark struggles
to embody, rather than reproduce, the spiritual totems of his ancestors.
