Knowing - by Shar Wilson, Gitxsan Artist
I have discovered as an Artist that I go through stages of change and experience forward movement as my depth of understanding of Gitxsan Art deepens and grows. Understanding the explicit meanings of form line has awakened my soul bit by bit - I feel like I am coming alive.
This piece was created in many stages and will morph into a different piece before long. But, even though, I am changing, growing, deepening my knowledge of our Ancient Art, there is always this 'knowing' that this art form has been preserved for me somehow and I strengthened with this Knowing.
